High­lights of Pres­i­dent Trump’s ex­ec­u­tive or­der on health care:

New York Post - - NEWS -

Ex­pands short-term health plans, which are less ex­pen­sive and of­fer less cov­er­age but which could be pop­u­lar with young peo­ple not cov­ered by their par­ents’ poli­cies. Trump wants to in­crease the term from three months to about a year.

Ex­pands ac­cess to “as­so­ci­a­tion health plans,” in which a group of in­di­vid­u­als or small busi­nesses team up to buy health in­sur­ance col­lec­tively, which could lower ex­penses.

Peo­ple with pre-ex­ist­ing con­di­tions would be el­i­gi­ble to sign up for such as­so­ci­a­tion plans, but costs could vary.

In­creases the use of health-care re­im­burse­ment ac­counts.

Al­low small busi­nesses, as­so­ci­a­tions and per­haps in­di­vid­u­als to buy poli­cies across state lines, in­creas­ing com­pe­ti­tion and low­er­ing costs.
