Bret Schroeder, healthcare expert at PA Consulting Group, discusses the Congressional Budget Office's report on President Trump’s plan to eliminate monthly subsidy payments, and the impact on the ACA marketplaces. He also discusses potential changes to premiums for less-comprehensive healthcare plans. 

Commenting on monthly subsidy changes and the impact on premiums, Bret says: “There’s not a lot of people that would be affected substantially by these premium increases.”

Bret adds: “What would happen is the net premiums stay the same because the tax subsidies would replace the [cost-sharing reduction] payments.”
