The White House has not yet released any official drafts or summaries of the order.

Trump has suggested in a tweet that the order might help health plans sell coverage across state lines.

News reports have suggested that the order also could:

  • Ease or eliminate a new, Obama-era regulation that limits the duration of short-term medical insurance policies to 90 days.

  • Begin the process of potentially pulling back from federal enforcement of the Affordable Care Act individual coverage ownership mandate.

  • Support employer use of health reimbursement arrangements.

  • Lead to new federal scrutiny of health care provider consolidation efforts.
