"Today's decision by the Trump administration to end the appeal of that ruling preserves a monumental affirmation of Congress's authority and the separation of powers".

The White House also said the associations would give employers more leverage to negotiate with insurance companies in purchasing health insurance plans for employees. "The president, whose agenda is constrained by the Constitution (and, arguably, the ongoing decay of our political institutions), is taking matters into his own hands", he wrote. "Over time, you could see the ACA plans looking like a high-risk pool with everyone opting out".

"This is promoting healthcare, choice and competition all across the United States..."

The same three insurers offering 2017 plans in the marketplace here all filed to participate in 2018, although they could still drop out if they decide to. The Obama administration, however, appealed the ruling which allowed the CSR payments to be made.

The president's order expands access to cheaper and less comprehensive insurance, which experts predict will result in health plans for the sick becoming more expensive.

The White House said late Thursday it would immediately halt payments to insurers under the Obama-era health care law.

"This is going to be something that millions and millions of people will be signing up for and they're going to be very happy", Trump said before signing the order.

Without changes, regulators said then, insurers were asking to raise premiums an average of 8.8 percent statewide; if the payments stop, that average would increase to 20.3 percent. He has not committed to making billions of dollars of payments to insurers guaranteed under Obamacare, prompting many to exit the individual market or hike premiums for 2018. "It has been a nightmare".

These plans would also likely have adverse effects for people who choose ACA-compliant plans, experts say.

Association health plans allow small-business owners, trade groups and others to purchase health insurance packages collectively. They argued people living in their states would be harmed if the payments ceased. That will make costs lower, but it also means fewer benefits.

56 percent of those polled supported Obamacare to 33 percent who backed the Republican bill, according to an ABC News/Washington Post poll that was released on September 22.

Mr Trump tweeted on Friday that "piece by piece" his administration will begin the process of "giving America the great HealthCare it deserves!" UnitedHealth and Aetna, for instance, exited healthcare exchanges, while, for instance, exited exchanges abandoned the healthcare exchanges last year, while WellCare Health Plans (WCG) never entered the market.

They argue that the order will lead to the creation of a "shadow" health insurance system that competes directly against the ACA marketplaces, offering cheap and limited policies.

Dirk Van Dongen, the president of the National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors, told The New York Times he's "delighted" by the move.

People with lower incomes will be unaffected since the ACA, also known as Obamacare, provides government subsidies - in the form of tax credits - that ensure their out-of-pocket insurance costs remain stable. Those types of plans wouldn't be subject to "costly Obamacare mandates and rules" according to Trump. California Attorney General Xavier Becerra said Trump's executive order is just another step toward imploding the Affordable Care Act. The company bought a smaller competitor, Universal American, to focus even more on the growing Medicare Advantage market.
