Unable to convince Congress to keep their promise to the American voters, Trump indicated he would take unilateral action to resolve the health-care crisis brought on by imploding Obamacare.
He said his action would let people cross state lines to obtain “great, competitive healthcare” costing the United States “nothing.”
The order will allow small businesses and individuals to band together as associations to buy health insurance plans that would be exempt from some Obamacare requirements. These include mandatory coverage for 10 essential health benefits such as maternity and newborn care, prescription drugs and mental health treatment.
The amount of time people can use short-term medical insurance plans would also expand, which are cheaper than traditional plans but cover a limited set of benefits. People could use those plans for up to a year, compared to three months under current law.
President Trump will allow Americans to buy healthcare across state lines as he promised during his campaign. This is also a plan spearheaded by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.).
The president is expected to sign an executive order this week that will allow health associations to cater to customers in different states.
“They’ll be able to buy, they’ll be able to cross state lines and they will get great competitive healthcare, and it will cost the United States nothing,” Trump told reporters at the White House. “With Congress the way it is, I decided to take it upon myself, so we’ll be announcing that soon as far as the signing’s concerned, but it’s largely worked out.”
As Infowars reported on Sept. 20, Sen. Paul was talking to President Trump about implementing this plan – and we said it would be announced in the coming weeks, which is now.
“If 15 million people could get together to buy their insurance, guess what, they would get a cheaper price, they would get protection against preexisting conditions, and I think they would get most of the things they want,” Paul stated.
