    Impact on Employers of Presidential Executive Orders Regarding Affordable Care Act

The first executive order asks federal agencies to address three issues: (i) expanding access to association health plans; (ii) expanding coverage through low cost short-term limited duration insurance; and (iii) changing health reimbursement arrangements (HRAs) so employers can have more leeway to use them for employees. The second order ends the reimbursements to insurers of cost-sharing reductions to low-income individuals who purchase coverage through the ACA insurance exchanges.
