With uncertainty surrounding president trumps proposals. You'll and also Ted says using the Central Bank still wants to keep assessing the economy. He did it change we don't know what's gonna happen. 652 now Steve into the morning Don grants yet be the money tracker what might happen to your obamacare health plan well. Well you know the trop administration is intent upon dissolving the Affordable Care Act now we're not sure what will replace it yet. But while more waiting to learn more about what's to come what could happen to your coverage well for now. The ACA mandates remain in effect that means the president's executive order to federal agencies to exercise all authority and discretion available then to wave deferred grant exemptions from and delay. The amplitude occupation of any fiscal requirement I act. Would impose a fiscal burden. Now his order does not have the authority to eliminate those requirements so they remain in effect until congress acts. 2017. Coverage should remain as it is now with your health care provider the plans were. Approved by state regulators and agreements need to be adheres to at least for this year. State regulators will need to approve any future changes. Your plan provisions can't change richer individual plan. Receives federal subsidies. And at fun day in day as per the directive by the president could be removed and your premiums could go up. Congressional action is required to make any major change to the plants so. It'll take time for the changes to happen now we should have plenty of lead time before any revisions are implement it. Beginning in 2018. Coverage and premiums will likely change. If the repeal of a CA plan requirements moves forward that means that some of the favored requirements like covered preventative care existing condition provision provisions. And keeping kids on parent's plans still aged 26 those could go away although they're very popular so they probably want. And finally repeal the law would remove the requirement that employers with fifty or more workers be required to offer health care coverage. Or pay an assessment to subsidize coverage bottom line. It's up to congress to repeal that replaced the plan until then. We are still under the ACA at least till the end of this year so if you have any questions you can give me call 634. Point 2.2.
