Court blocks Trump rule allowing cheaper health insurance

Posted April 03, 2019

The Trump administration is working to repeal the law. "That's Trump's health insurance plan", he added.

Though former President Barack Obama's universal health care plan was passed into law, the concept made many Americans wary.

U.S. District Judge Reed O'Connor ruled a year ago that Obamacare is no longer constitutional because the tax reform - as enacted by Republicans -eliminated the health care law's penalty for not having health insurance.

If the ruling is upheld by higher courts, about 20 million Americans could lose healthcare coverage on Trump's watch.

Rules allowing association health plans began going into effect less than six months ago, and according to the Kaiser Family Foundation, which studies trends in health care, only a few plans have been announced. It's now fully supported by the Trump administration, which earlier had argued that only the law's protections for people with pre-existing conditions and its limits on how much insurers could charge older, sicker customers were constitutionally tainted.

U.S. District Court Judge John D. Bates last week struck down the administration's health plans for small business and sole proprietors, which allowed less generous benefits than required by the ACA. Bates said he agreed with states challenging the rule that the Department of Labor stretched the definition of the "employer".
