  • Elimination of federal funding for subsidies
  • Elimination of coverage mandates and tax penalty for not "having minimum essential coverage"
  • Elimination of federal funding for Medicaid expansion used by 31 states to cover low income individuals
  • Allow states to determine coverage for pre-existing conditions (maintains requirement that all individuals be covered, rates for those with pre-existing conditions could go up)
  • Eliminations of requirement to cover "essential health benefits provision, which mandates insurers cover an array of services, including hospitalization, maternity care, prescription drugs, mental health and substance abuse services"
  • Allow states to change financial protections for insurance coverage, including the current out of pocket payment maximums and deductible limits (no more out of pocket maximum)
  • Removes requirement prohibiting charging older people more than younger people
  • Changes Medicaid funding formula to fixed amount per person and as a fixed block grant regardless of people enrolled in each state (states would be required to cover a larger portion of Medicaid funding)
  • Allows work requirements for Medicaid
  • Allows everyone access to "catastrophic" policies that only cover the most urgent care (currently only allowed for those under 30)
  • Repeals taxes on OTC drugs, health savings accounts, and medical devices
  • Prohibits federal funding for Planned Parenthood
  • Nearly doubles maximum contributions to health savings accounts
  • Provide funding for community health centers
  • Removes tax penalty for larger businesses not providing coverage for employees
  • Many other smaller changes to structure of plans (this Kaiser Family Foundation summary provides a summary)

However, Trump did not take any formal action against the deal aside from asking for a review of it.

"While Trump did not pull the United States out of the agreement, he gave the U.S. Congress 60 days to decide whether to reimpose economic sanctions on Tehran that were lifted under the pact.  If Congress reimposes the sanctions, the United States would in effect be in violation of the terms of the nuclear deal and it would likely fall apart. If lawmakers do nothing, the deal remains in place."

The International Atomic Energy Agency, which is providing oversight of the deal, confirmed Iran's compliance with the terms of the deal.

The collaborative deal between Iran and the U.S., U.K., Russia, France, China, and Germany, limits Iranian production of nuclear material by:

  • Restricting the amount of equipment installed and operating to allow enrichment of uranium.  While enriching uranium at a low level produces fuel for nuclear power plants, a higher level of enrichment leads to the type of uranium used in nuclear weapons.
  • Reducing the stockpile of uranium in Iran by 98% for 15 years plus setting a maximum enrichment level for this uranium
  • Redesigning a plutonium reactor so it cannot create weapon-grade nuclear material
  • Expanding the ability and authority of the International Atomic Energy Agency to routinely inspect and monitor nuclear activity in Iran
  • Continuation of a UN arms embargo
In return, the economic sanctions imposed on Iran would be lifted, allowing Iran access to over $100 billion in frozen assets and resuming international oil trade, worth over $40 billion a year to the economy of Iran.

The executive order asks the Secretaries of Treasury, Labor, and Health and Human Services to propose legislation seeking:
  • "Expanded Access to Association Health Plans" (group healthcare plans created by employers)
  • "Expanded Availability of Short-Term, Limited‑Duration Insurance"
  • "Expanded Availability and Permitted Use of Health Reimbursement Arrangements" (allows employers to set aside funding/contributions to be used only to reimburse costs of healthcare in lieu of providing full healthcare coverage for employees)

  • Reducing the open enrollment advertising budget by 90%
  • Running negative ads about Affordable Care Act marketplaces
  • Seeking to expand alternatives to the Affordable Care Act

The EPA noted that "the Obama-era regulation exceeds the Agency’s statutory authority" and "the proposed repeal could provide up to $33 billion in avoided compliance costs in 2030." The Clean Power Plan provided a specific pollution reduction goal but allowed flexibility for individual states to "develop and implement tailored plans to ensure that the power plants in their state meet these standards– either individually, together, or in combination with other measures like improvements in renewable energy and energy efficiency."
