First Proposed ACA Rule Changes

By: Jen McCormick, Esq.

Today we got our first new proposed ACA rule changes from the Trump Administration.  One of the proposals was to decrease the open enrollment window for individuals to sign up on the insurance exchanges.  Specifically, the window which is currently November 1 to January 31 would instead be November 1 to December 15.  The thought, it seems, is that this will limit an insurers exposure from individuals only signing up once they get sick… if there is a shorter window. Hold on for the ride because I imagine this will be the first of many revisions to ACA as we know it today.
