How President Trump's healthcare executive order will impact Nebraskans

Schneiderman says it's "an effort simply to blow up the system" after Congress failed to repeal the Obama-era Affordable Care Act. The payments - known as cost-sharing reductions - are required by Obamacare.

Schneiderman said Trump based his decision on guidance from the Departments of Justice and Health and Human Services that there were no direct provisions in law calling for the cost reduction payments. Critics of Trump's executive order warn the cheaper-plans-with-less-coverage option will inevitably drive up insurance costs for Americans with serious medical conditions, and cause more insurers to abandon the ACA marketplaces. "We have taken aggressive actions to ensure that whatever happens in Washington, essential health benefits will continue to be the rule in NY, not the exception, and we will continue to fight for quality and affordable health care for all New Yorkers".

"Though he has made these payments since taking office, President Trump has declared that he will stop them immediately".

"Hundreds of thousands of NY families rely on the Affordable Care Act's subsidies for their health care - and again and again, President Trump has threatened to cut off these subsidies to undermine our healthcare system and force Congress to the negotiating table", he continued.

In May, Schneiderman and California Attorney General Xavier Becerra spearheaded a coalition of 18 state attorneysgGeneral seeking to intervene in House v. Price, a related court case.

Trump's executive orders are expected to increase insurance premiums and potentially cost the government an extra $2.3 billion next year, according to NPR.

In Pennsylvania, Independence Blue Cross is the only insurance company participating in the Affordable Care Act. Instead of working on bipartisan solutions to improve our health care system, President Trump is jeopardizing health care for millions of Americans, leaving everyone paying more for less care.
