White House wants to hear about insurers’ challenges with grandfathered ACA plans

The Trump administration wants to know what challenges employer and group health plans face in maintaining grandfathered status for Affordable Care Act plans.

The Treasury and Labor departments and HHS issued the request for information late Thursday. The request comes as the number of grandfathered plans fall.

The agencies want to understand “whether there are opportunities for the departments to assist such plans and issuers,” the rule said.

President Donald Trump signed an executive order when he first entered office that directed federal agencies to reduce any financial burden from the ACA, and the request for information is a result of that order.
