The ongoing partial federal government shutdown will be entering its fourth week, making it the longest lapse in federal appropriations in American history. As the Trump Administration and Congress negotiate a possible resolution to reopen the government, attention has been drawn away from other legislative issues. On this week’s episode, NAHU’s Marcy M. Buckner, John Greene and Chris Hartmann unpack how the shutdown is impacting NAHU’s legislative agenda, and when to expect our legislative priorities to be re-introduced in the new session of Congress. They also review the latest round of comments that NAHU has submitted to the Trump Administration, including our detailed response to the proposed expansion of health reimbursement arrangements, and our concerns with the proposal that would require insurers to send two premium statements each month to marketplace enrollees.
