Association health plan ruling puts some companies in limbo

Asked if he, like President Trump, wants to repeal the Affordable Care Act, Sanders noted his health care plan is profoundly different from what the White House and its Republican allies in Congress envision.
President Donald Trump is telling associates he does not expect a Republican-backed lawsuit to strike down all of Obamacare in the courts will prevail - even as he champions an effort to make the GOP the 'party of health care'.
Sen. Bernard Sanders, Vermont Democrat, made an ambitious campaign promise Sunday, declaring that he would slash US prescription-drug prices in half if elected president in 2020.
A federal judge's ruling against a type of health insurance plan designed for small business owners has some companies now thinking about what to do next. And The Hill is reporting that Republicans in the Senate are fearful that they will pay a dear price politically next year because of the lawsuit.
Trump has said association health plans would let Americans "escape some of Obamacare's most burdensome mandates".
His campaign promise came with candidates in the crowded Democratic presidential field jostling for the support of the party's left wing with calls for government to play a larger role in health care.
"Without Tom pushing it, I don't think we would have had Romneycare", Romney said in an obituary for Thomas Stemberg, a Boston-based business exec who pushed for the health care overhaul. He says Republicans are working on a replacement plan, but Congressman Peter Welch says that simply isn't true.
The administration has been "having conversations" on health care and has been in contact with the conservative Heritage Foundation, the Hoover Institute, and the the Mercatus Center affiliated with George Mason University, according to the report. It's now fully supported by the Trump administration, which earlier had argued that only the law's protections for people with pre-existing conditions and its limits on how much insurers could charge older, sicker customers were constitutionally tainted.
He explained that he agrees with the administration that the ACA is unconstitutional, but if the courts rule that it is indeed unconstitutional, then that could create an immediate vacuum in the American health care system and toss millions of people off health care plans because of pre-existing conditions. He found that administration officials failed to account for coverage losses and other potential harm, and sent the Health and Human Services Department back to the drawing board.
Association health plans also have faced opposition at the state level.
