About the Executive Order that President Trump recently signed, in relation to the Affordable Care Act. Please know this Executive Order did not repeal any part of the ACA. No changes have been made to the healthcare law, and we strongly recommend that you continue to treat health insurance benefits as the ACA requires. Below is a quote from the attached notice; please read the full notice at your leisure, for more detailed information.
The order directs HHS and the heads of other departments and agencies (e.g., U.S. Department of Labor, Treasury Department) to exercise all available authority and discretion to waive, defer, grant exemptions from, or delay the implementation of any provision of the ACA that would impose a fiscal burden on any State or cost a fee, tax, penalty, or regulatory burden on individuals, families, healthcare providers, health insurers, patients, recipients of healthcare services, purchasers of health insurance, or makers of medical devices, products, or medications. It should be noted that employers are not among those explicitly listed as requiring protection from regulatory burdens.
