  • House Dems Demand Trump Make ObamaCare Insurance Payments The Hill by Nathaniel Weixel–Nearly 200 House Democrats are demanding President Trump fund Obamacare's cost-sharing reduction payments to insurers. "The law requires, and it is your obligation under the law" to make the payments "and to stop other acts of sabotage that undermine Americans' access to affordable, quality health insurance," the House Democrats wrote in a letter to Trump.

Other insurers around the country, such as Aetna and Humana, have already said they will not offer coverage on exchanges next year, though several, including Centene, say they will.
