quietly, Trump has been doing things to help more people be able to get health care. The latest is restoring an option that Obama took away:
Prior to Obamacare, employers used Health Reimbursement Arrangements to reimburse workers for a wider array of expenses, including premiums. The Obama administration, however, barred the use of Health Reimbursement Arrangements to buy policies on the individual market.
Trump wants to restore the ability for the pre tax money to be used for workers to purchase heath insurance.
Trump has also helped in two other ways:
The administration has already carried out the order’s other directives: expanding short-term policies, which last less than a year and aren’t required to adhere to all of Obamacare’s rules, and making it easier for small businesses to band together and offer coverage through association health plans, which also don’t have to offer coverage as comprehensive as the Affordable Care Act requires.
Gee giving people MORE options, MORE ways to get health insurance outside of the exchanges.
What say you Dem’s? Good options (the three things) to help people get insurance? Or do we just do the get insurance through our exchange or face a tax penalty?
