Heinrich Statement On President Trump's Decision To End Critical Health Care Payments

Attorneys general plan to file suits to continue ACA payments

The Trump administration late Thursday said it would immediately halt funding for billions of dollars in Affordable Care Act subsidies, calling them unlawful and potentially roiling health insurance marketplaces. The Essential Plan covers residents whose income is just above the eligibility level for Medicaid; the federal funding, which went to NY rather than the insurance companies, was based on what the value of their cost-sharing reductions would be.

"The American people deserve better. We are now evaluating what this announcement may mean for individual consumer plans in the future".

On Thursday, Trump announced that the White House will no longer repay insurers for decreasing costs for customers under provisions of the ACA.

Schneiderman's office addressed the move in a statement yesterday.

President Trump's announcement that the government will stop paying healthcare subsidies to insurance companies for low income people on the Affordable Care Act has caused fear and concern for those policy holders who receive the vital funds that keep premiums financially manageable. "Our coalition of states stands ready to sue if President Trump cuts them off", Schneiderman added.

Meanwhile, in California, Attorney General Xavier Becerra said he similarly expected to file a suit to have the payments continue.

"Having failed to persuade a Republican Congress to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA), President Trump now appears to be trying to accomplish by executive fiat what he could not through Congress - treating New Yorkers as political pawns in his effort to sabotage the health care market".

I got a look at the EO. while he was signing it from kind of some leaks and there's really just three things- There's a lot more in what the president said than there are actually details in the executive order. Vermont Independent Senator Bernie Sanders tells WAMC's North Country Bureau Chief Pat Bradley he is particularly concerned about President Donald Trump's executive order to roll back the Affordable Care Act.
