California Passes Ban on Short-Term Health Insurance Cheaper than Obamacare

By Chriss Street

The Democrat-controlled California legislature urged Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday to sign a ban on bargain-priced short-term health insurance plans sponsored by the Trump administration for being cheaper than Obamacare.

The legislature passed SB 910 on August 21 to prevent what the bill’s author, Sen. Edward Hernandez (D-Montebello), referred to in a tweet as “junk” healthcare. Hernandez urged Gov. Brown to sign the bill to prevent going back to a time when insured patients could be denied care and be forced into financial ruin.

The Trump administration rescinded a rule in late July issued during the Obama years that extended short-duration health insurance policies from three months to 364 days. Trump also allowed insurers the right to offer short-term health plans that are automatically renewable up to 3 years.

Obama restricted the term of short-term insurance, and required every adult to buy coverage, to force healthy young consumers to buy expensive Obamacare comprehensive policies to subsidize the cost of insurance for older and sicker consumers with pre-existing health conditions.
