ACA Executive Order

First, the Executive Order calling for the expanded availability of association health plans, short-term insurance plans, and health reimbursement arrangements (HRAs). It also covers the President’s announcement that the government will no longer be reimbursing insurance carriers for cost-sharing reduction (CSR) payments made in connection with Marketplace plans.

The Executive Order has no immediate effect as it simply directs other agencies to begin drafting rules; however, the cessation of cost-sharing reduction payments is effective immediately and will halt the upcoming October 18, 2017 payment unless a court intervenes or Congress appropriates the funding.
