Working with a disability attorney ensures that all evidence in support of an application for disability is gathered, organized, filed with the SSA, and presented when otherwise required. We take great pride in our staff’s skills in building and presenting a case for disability benefits.

President Trump has threatened to stop cost-sharing reduction (CSR) payments to insurers under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). One effect is that marketplace insurers in some states would withdraw from or not enter the marketplaces in 2018.

Even worse, other insurers would likely completely withdraw from the marketplace, increasing the number of persons with no marketplace plans. This would result in 1 million more uninsured people in 2018 than under current law. If the CSR payments stopped after insurers had already finalized premiums for 2018, insurers would suffer significant financial losses and even more, insurers would leave the marketplaces, according to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO).

Also, as a result of marketplace withdrawal, the share of the nation’s population living in areas with no marketplace insurers would rise to 5 percent in 2018, up from less than 0.5 percent under current law. The number of uninsured would rise by 1 million in 2018, also relative to current law.

The CBO found that stopping Cost Sharing Reduction payments would abruptly stop the individual market’s continued progress towards financial health and stability. Thus, the Trump Administration should eliminate any uncertainty and pledge to continue these payments permanently.
