Rand Paul: Trump exec order moves toward free market health care

Rand Paul: Trump exec order moves toward free market health care
With Congress’ repeated failure to pass Obamacare, President Donald Trump is expected to sign an executive action on health care Thursday to make it easier for individuals to form health associations and purchase insurance across state lines.

The president has been working with Senator Rand Paul, R-Ky., for months to develop this executive order. In an op-ed for Breitbart News, Sen. Paul outlined several details of the plan.

How will it work?

Hi, Am

Yes. No Ex-O is written in stone. I wonder how many democrat Ex-Os have been undone by any GOP potus all together?  I'm sure that you recall that, back at TPP, ,me and Atlas had pointed out that the sure way to kill the ACA was/is to stop it at its lifeblood: the MONEY!

The ACA is already flatlining because the targetted "forced-consumers" of the ACA...the young millennials...are NOT and have NOT come on board - despite the indiviudal mandate. 

Also, the one real reason that insurance carriers got on board in the first place was because of the so called "cost-sharing subsidies". A very pretty term for government BAILOUTS! N different than the QEs the Fed has pumped into Wall Street. Which explains its soaring "21,000" under  BOzo altuohgh our GDP had never even reached 3% in the last 9yrs!

AND, since the heart of the ACA relies on the 15,000 pages of regulations filled in by the secy of HHS...only AFTER the "law" was passed...President Trump's Ex-O was the absolute LAWFUL thing to do - as only the HoR has the Constitutional  POWER to approriate any monies collected from the TAXPAYERS!  I seriously doubt that Kasich, Romney or the DC/GOP poster child Jeb Bush would heve made such a move!

And, w/ that, I can't help but BELIEVE that the GOP majority in the House and Senate would want to pass legislation that would make those insurance BAILOUTS the law-of-the-land.

Have the GOP/DC machine learned anything w/ the results in Alabama?  Imo, their every action since Trump's Inauguration...NINE shows otherwise. I call it like I see it.

Executive, Congressional Privilege without Constitutional Restraint.....

Sure looks that way to me after reading the presidents executive order.

"Trump exec order moves toward free market health care"

He may move but:

It's no secret the presidents executive order is not set in stone because it is NOT law and Obamacare has not been repealed by Congress.

I do wonder how long it will take for Congress to start amending Obamacare law because of the presidents executive order. There is no way that Federal beast is going to relinquish its power over healthcare and leave it to the free market.

Executive order excerpt...

 Section 1. Policy. (a) It shall be the policy of the executive branch, to the extent consistent with law, to facilitate the purchase of insurance across State lines and the development and operation of a healthcare system that provides high-quality care at affordable prices for the American people. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), however, has severely limited the choice of healthcare options available to many Americans and has produced large premium increases in many State individual markets for health insurance. The average exchange premium in the 39 States that are using www.healthcare.gov in 2017 is more than double the average overall individual market premium recorded in 2013. The PPACA has also largely failed to provide meaningful choice or competition between insurers, resulting in one-third of America's counties having only one insurer offering coverage on their applicable government-run exchange in 2017.

.

This surely looks like a new federal law that will be regulated by the federal government....

"It shall be the policy of the executive branch, to the extent consistent with law, to facilitate the purchase of insurance across State lines and the development and operation of a healthcare system that provides high-quality care at affordable prices for the American people."

Full executive order ....

I ran across this tonight, worth a good read, imo.

It's a little too long to post, may answer a few of your questions Luis.

Allowing Purchases of Out-of-State Health Insurance

10/02/2017

A State Actions Report

Insurance firms in each state are protected from interstate competition by the federal McCarran-Ferguson Act (1945), which grants states the right to regulate health plans within their borders. Large employers who self-insure are exempt from these state regulations. The result has been a patchwork of 50 different sets of state regulations and the cost for an insurer licensed in one state to enter another state market is often high. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) set new standards, but retained the strong context of state regulation.

A growing number of state legislators have been interested in whether some states allow or facilitate the purchase of health insurance across state boundaries or from out-of-state regulated companies. NCSL's state health insurance research and tracking shows a gradually growing number of states—at least 21 as of mid-2017—and state legislators considering this idea during the past ten years and continuing to the present.

The result includes enacted laws in six states, and filed bills not passed in at least 15 others. As of mid-2017 no state was known to actually offer or sell such policies. For background see NAIC and other views.

Origins and History

All 50 states regulate health insurance and have done so for decades. While laws vary from state to state, they generally provide a structure that combines business regulation, employer incentives and consumer protections and obligations. The variations can be extensive, especially affecting mandates or required benefits.
