 On its front page, the Washington Post (10/13, A1, Goldstein, Eilperin) reports that the White House confirmed Thursday that it will stop making federal payments for “cost-sharing reductions,” payments to health insurers “that help millions of lower-income Americans afford coverage.” A statement from the Department of Health and Human Services confirmed that the “cutoff would be immediate.” The Post reports that “insurers have said that stopping the cost-sharing payments would be the single greatest step the Trump administration could take to damage the marketplaces – and the law.”

 

The AP (10/13, Thomas, Lucey) reports that leading Republicans have called for “continuing the payments to insurers, at least temporarily, so constituents maintain access to health insurance,” and Sens. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) and Patty Murray (D-WA) have been working on legislation to do that, “though they differ over how long these subsidies should be guaranteed.”
