Wrecking Ball: Trump has taken its first action to change the way the AFA's health insurance marketplaces operate. The overall consequence is that health insurance will be harder to buy in 2018, especially for people whose circumstances change during the year. The length of that sign-up period is cut in half. Other aspects of the regulation could make coverage less comprehensive, reduce the value of the tax credit subsidies that make premiums more affordable for low- and middle-income people, and allow insurers to offer plans with fewer medical providers in their networks. These new policies are intended to make the exchanges more attractive to insurance companies next year, after more insurers pulled out of the program this year. Consumers may be forced to endure more hassles in order to keep insurers in the fold because without the insurers, there’s no coverage to buy.'
