STLD Insurance a Vital Alternative for Millions of Americans Seeking Relief from Skyrocketing Costs of Obamacare

Arlington, VA – The Trump administration today issued its final rule on short-term, limited-duration health insurance plans, extending the allowed coverage period from a previous maximum of three months to a new maximum of thirty-six months. The final rule expands access to better alternatives for Americans priced out of Obamacare’s escalating premiums.

Freedom Partners Executive Vice President Nathan Nascimento issued the following statement:

“Americans trapped under rapidly escalating health care costs are desperate for more affordable alternatives. Short-term, limited duration insurance plans offer that much-needed relief, providing people more choices to access good coverage that best fits their needs at prices they can actually afford. We applaud continued efforts to expand choice in health insurance markets for the millions of men and women hurt most by Obamacare.”

In April, Freedom Partners and its grassroots partners, Americans for Prosperity and The LIBRE Initiative, submitted a formal comment to the Departments of Health and Human Services, Treasury, and Labor in strong support of expanding STLD insurance plans. Nathan Nascimento reiterated that support in an op-ed published by Morning Consult.
