Yasmeen Abutaleb on the Affordable Care Act Yasmeen Abutaleb talked about the Trump administration’s words and actions on paying for cost-sharing reductions (CSR) given to low income Americans for insurance coverage purchased in the Affordable Care Act individual exchanges. Although the administration has continued making monthly CRS payments, the president has threatened to stop payments, which has created uncertainty among insurers and led to rate increases. A Congressional Budget Office report showed that health insurance premiums would be 20 percent higher in 2018 if CSRs do not continue. Ms. Abutaleb also discussed action to expect from Congress regarding the health care law when members return from their August recess. close
