The Trump administration sent one of its original health policy transition advisors, Marie Meszaros, to a meeting with representatives from the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association on stabilizing the individual health insurance market.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services sent a draft Affordable Care Act market stabilization executive order to the Office of Management and Budget for regulatory review Feb. 1.
The Chicago-based Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association asked for a meeting on the proposed executive order, and OMB, an arm of the Executive Office of the President, held the meeting Monday, according to the OMB tracking system.
The tracking system shows that the attendees from the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association were two vice presidents, Justine Handelman and Kris Haltmeyer.
The Trump administration sent at least 13 representatives, including Meszaros.
Meszaros has been a policy analyst at the Washington-based Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget.
