Following an executive order by President Trump last fall, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services proposed a new rule that would make it easier for consumers to purchase short-term insurance plans. The rule would reverse the Affordable Care Act’s restrictions on these plans, leaving consumers vulnerable to higher costs and weaker protections.
Through April 23, 2018, the Department of Health and Human Services is accepting comments on this proposed rule from individuals like you. Your comments can demonstrate that while Americans want relief from costly premiums, we do not want to return to the unregulated days of skimpy insurance and higher costs for those who are sick.
