New Executive Order Designed to Change ACA Rules

On Oct. 12, President Donald Trump signed an executive order intended to change current ACA rules and reform the U.S. health care system by expanding choices and increasing competition. While it does not implement any immediate change, the order provides guidance for federal agencies to issue new regulations.

It will take time to see the full impact of the executive order, and it is unlikely any significant change will be seen before the Nov. 1 open enrollment period. All employers should continue to prepare for upcoming ACA requirements and deadlines.

The order is expected to relax regulations on association health plans, allowing individuals and small businesses to purchase health insurance policies across state lines and avoid certain ACA requirements.
