Extended short-term insurance deals latest blow to Obamacare

(Worthy News) – The Trump administration moved Tuesday to give consumers another workaround to Obamacare, proposing to let health insurers sell full-year plans that don’t comply with the 2010 law’s strict coverage guidelines.

Under Obama-era rules, short-term plans can last only three months, but the Health and Human Services Department said it wants to allow plans up to a year.

People priced out of Obamacare’s exchanges would be enticed back into the market by affordable options, administration officials said — though critics said the move could deliver another serious blow to the Affordable Care Act by siphoning off current customers willing to pay less for skimpier plans.
