Clear Proof Trump Working To Undermine Healthcare By Messing With Enrollment Season

October 20, 2017

Americans with insurance through the Affordable Care Act could find themselves locked into health plans they do not want for the coming year because of the Trump administration’s schedule for the enrollment season that starts in less than two weeks.

The complication arises when people who already have health plans under the law are automatically re-enrolled in the same plan. In the past, a few million consumers each year have been auto-enrolled and then were sent government notices encouraging them to check whether they could find better or more affordable coverage. This time the automatic enrollment will take place after it is too late to make any changes.

That inability to make changes is particularly problematic at the moment because political turmoil surrounding the sprawling health care law has contributed to spikes in 2018 insurance rates that might catch customers by surprise.
