Trump says likely to sign new healthcare order this week

The move will make it easier to purchase non-Obamacare-compliant insurance through "association health plans", according to the Journal. These include mandatory coverage for 10 essential health benefits such as maternity and newborn care, prescription drugs and mental health treatment.

Without details, it's hard to say how many people would have access to these plans, or whether they'd prompt any significant changes in the insurance markets. People could use those plans for up to a year, compared to three months under current law.

He further adds, "With Congress the way it is, I made a decision 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".

Senate Republicans attempted to use a procedure known as budget reconciliation to dismantle Obamacare because they would need only 51 votes to pass a bill with Vice President Mike Pence able to break a tie.

Holler said association health plans can increase consumer choice - which has been a key goal for conservatives.


It is unclear when these plans would become available.

Many insurers as well as the general public are likely anxiously waiting to see if and when Trump's executive order will come out - and what exactly it will contain, as it could potentially have very substantial implications for health care in the United States. Club for Growth President David McIntosh said expanding association health plans was among six ideas he presented to Trump for changing the ACA administratively at a meeting of conservative leaders at the White House in March. The action could open Trump to legal challenges from Democratic state attorneys general, who have said they will sue Trump if he tries to destroy Obamacare. But the new Obamacare website was not working well, and people with canceled plans were having trouble buying new ones.

Incidentally, most health-policy experts predict that older Americans and those with health conditions, like Kissinger, could face higher costs under Trump's planned executive orders.

"There's a general belief that at every turn the federal government is going to create regulations to hurt rather than help the markets", said Craig Garthwaite, director of the healthcare program at Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management, referring to the Trump administration. "I don't believe in undercutting people", he said. Republican Senator Rand Paul advocated for this solution when the discussions for the replacement of the Obamacare was discussed.

Trump doesn't understand the difference between laws and executive orders.
