Short-Term ObamaCare Relief• https://www.wsj.com, by The Editorial Board
Democrats are making an election issue of rising health-care costs, so it's strange that they are now criticizing a new Trump Administration rule that would make cheaper insurance available to more Americans. Maybe they fear people will like it.
Health and Human Services on Wednesday finished a rule to expand short-term, limited-duration health insurance. This product has been around for decades for people between jobs or otherwise in need of coverage against the risk of a catastrophic illness. The plans must comply with state laws but aren't subject to ObamaCare rules on benefits or pricing.
