Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar speaks to the House Ways and Means Committee last week in Washington about the FY19 budget.
The Trump administration wants to allow insurance companies to offer more policies that have limited health benefits and that can reject customers if they have pre-existing medical conditions.
Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar says the plans, which don’t meet the legal requirements for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act, will allow consumers who can’t afford insurance now to find cheaper plans.
“It’s one step in the direction of providing Americans with health insurance options that are both more affordable and more suited to individual and family circumstances,” Azar said in a conference call with reporters Tuesday.
