The White House says Trump will sign the order at 11:15 Thursday morning in the Roosevelt Room at the White House. However, after Trump finished his remarks, he apparently forgot that he actually had to sign the order at his executive order signing, and made for the door.
But state officials pointed out that an association health plan can set different rates for different employers, so that a company with older, sicker workers might have to pay much more than a firm with young, healthy employees. Previously, these plans were only available to last for three months, but Trump seeks to expand these types of cheap plans and make them more widely available.
President Donald Trump took his first steps Thursday toward fulfilling his vow to dismantle Obamacare, signing an executive order that he says will bring affordable health insurance to millions more people.
Numerous new insurance products could be exempt from requirements of the Affordable Care Act that Republicans say have contributed to sharp increases in premiums but that supporters say have created a baseline of care that has protected consumers from "junk insurance".
With this issue stopping Trump from fulfilling one of his campaign promise, he has mentioned before that he is considering using an executive order that would enable Americans to purchase their insurance plans through health associations across state borders. But association health plan policies would likely provide skimpier coverage since they would not have to adhere to all of Obamacare's protections.
Exactly how the agencies would change current regulations remains to be seen. But responding to concerns, the White House said participating employers could not exclude any workers from the plan, or charge more to those in poor health.
The order also loosens restrictions on "short-term" health insurance plans that were created to offer temporary coverage for people who are between jobs, for example.
Short-term policies could be particularly useful to people in counties where only a single insurer is offering plans in the Affordable Care Act marketplace, the White House said. Trump noted that one out of three counties in the United States have only one insurance option, which is essentially the same as having no choices at all.
Trump stated that the formation of associations would create new opportunities for employers to buy plans for their employees, and would result in more options for people who now do not have insurance.
Association health plans "cherry-pick health groups", making it more hard for less healthy groups to find affordable coverage, the National Association of Insurance Commissioners told Congress this year.
They are generally not required to provide "essential health benefits", such as emergency services, maternity and newborn care, mental health coverage and substance abuse treatment, although many do.
In addition to the health association plans, Trump said that he will explore the expansion of "short-term limited duration insurance", which are plans that are not subject to Obamacare's expensive regulations.
"Today is only the beginning", said Trump, who promised more actions toward the full repeal and replacement of Obamacare, as well as further financial help through his administration's tax plan. Precise details of the measure aren't yet known, but Trump has previously previewed unilateral action that would make it easier for small businesses to buy coverage by joining together.
Large-group plans are still subject to some requirements of the Affordable Care Act.
