aca reporting: the insurers’ stances

Insurers generally have two major problems with the repeal bill that passed the House in May. They think its tax credits to help low-income Americans purchase coverage are too stingy, and they’re worried about its $834 billion cut to Medicaid — a program that’s been increasingly lucrative for them….

…But insurers have mostly focused on trying to get the Trump administration to continue a key Obamacare subsidy program that’s being challenged in court. President Donald Trump has repeatedly threatened to cut off that funding, which most insurance experts believe would trigger an implosion of the struggling Obamacare markets. The fate of the subsidies, worth about $7 billion per year, remains in limbo after the Trump administration recently asked a federal court for another 90 days to consider how to proceed.
