AFP Commends New Rule on Short-Term, Limited-Duration Insurance Plans 

Aug 1, 2018 by AFP

Arlington, VA – Americans for Prosperity praised a new rule from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) extending short-term, limited-duration (STLD) insurance plans. The rule change will allow STLD plans to be extended from three months to a maximum of thirty-six months. These plans provide an option for millions of Americans who have been priced out of Obamacare exchanges to purchase substantial health insurance coverage.

Americans for Prosperity Policy Manager David Barnes issued the following statement:

“Short-Term, limited-duration plans will expand access to health insurance coverage for millions of Americans who cannot afford to pay Obamacare’s rapidly increasing costs. These excellent plans will reduce consumer costs and provide the opportunity for families to get plans that include high-quality doctors and hospitals who don’t accept current exchange plans. Extending these plans will close this crucial gap in the health care market by expanding access to more affordable options.”
