Trump Plans Pre-existing Conditions Orders as Administration-Backed Court Case Looms

The ACA’s fate is in the hands of the Supreme Court after a Trump administration-backed court case that threatens the ACA is set to finish playing out. In light of this Trump has promised to release executive orders protecting pre-existing conditions.

The exact contents of the orders are not known yet. The orders could fully protect pre-existing conditions like the ACA (which fully protects them if you have coverage), or they may be closer to what Republicans tried to pass in a previous house bill where they were only protected if you obtained and maintaed coverage without a break (this only partaly protects them, as you have to maintain coverage each year).

We will keep you updated.
