    Health Insurance Lobby Floats Market Stabilization Policies For GOP's ACA Repeal Effort
    The health insurance industry lobby is floating a package of proposals that it wants included in congressional Republicans' ACA repeal package in order to help stabilize the exchange markets and avoid coverage disruptions during a transition period. The 'reconciliation stabilization package' circulated by America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) includes cost-sharing reductions, a restructured tax credit that would be age-adjusted to incentivize younger enrollees, a transitional risk pool, incentives for continuous coverage and industry relief from the ACA's taxes.

    Price Signals He Won't Undermine Individual Mandate Prior To ACA Replacement
    Rep. Tom Price (R-GA) on Tuesday (Jan. 24) signaled that if confirmed as HHS chief he wouldn't take administrative action to undermine the ACA's individual mandate in advance of Congress repealing and replacing the law. Democrats pressed Price at his Senate Finance confirmation hearing on whether he would use an executive order President Donald Trump issued soon after becoming president to stop enforcing the mandate and also asked him to commit that no one would lose their insurance as a result of the executive order.

    Trump Institutes Reg Freeze, But Unclear If CMS Must Use Notice And Comment To Delay Final Rules
    The Trump administration instituted a regulatory freeze on Jan. 20 that requires federal agencies not issue any new regulations or guidance documents, pull back any regulations or guidance under review by the Office of the Federal Register, and temporarily postpone regulations and guidance that have been published but have yet to take effect. However, the Congressional Research Service in a legal memo obtained by Inside Health Policy notes that it isn't clear whether an agency like CMS would need to go through the notice-and-comment process before delaying the effective date of a rule that has been finalized but not yet implemented.
