Court backs Trump expansion of short-term health plans

Health Jul 17, 2020 5:31 PM EDT

WASHINGTON (AP) — A divided federal appeals court on Friday upheld the Trump administration’s expansion of cheaper short-term health insurance plans, derided by critics as “junk insurance,” as an alternative to the Affordable Care Act’s costlier comprehensive insurance.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit said in a 2-1 decision that the administration had the legal authority to increase the duration of the health plans from three to 12 months, with the option of renewing them for 36 months.

The plans do not have to cover people with preexisting conditions or provide basic benefits like prescription drugs.....

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the decision would allow the administration to “keep railroading vulnerable families into shoddy junk health insurance plans.”......

"Americans like to tell themselves a story about their health-care system delivering better results than the socialist systems of other developed countries.  But American health care is a creation of government, too - a government that has allowed powerful interests to seize pricing power allowed them by no other democracy in the world."

- David Frum, Trumpocalypse

Obama's Medicaid expansion gains momentum under Trump

Missouri voters this week approved broadening the gov't health care program, making it the seventh state to do so under the president.
 
............The Republican president readily carried Missouri in 2016, but the Medicaid vote comes as more people have been losing workplace health insurance in a treacherous coronavirus economy.
 

That leaves only a dozen states opposed to using the federal-state health program for low-income people as a vehicle for covering more adults, mainly people in jobs that don’t provide health care. Medicaid expansion is a central feature of former President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act, covering about 12 million people, while nearly 10 million others get subsidized private insurance........
