Podcast Episode 18: What It Means: White House Quashes CSR Payments

In this episode, Suzanne Spradley and Chase Cannon quickly recap the Senate’s competing bipartisan legislation on market stabilization and ACA fixes. The two then take a deep dive on a common thread in both pieces of legislation —and the target of a recent White House announcement: cost-sharing reduction (CSR) subsidies. The discussion quickly focuses on the definition and impact of CSR subsidies, how the announcement may impact individual market premiums, litigation that was already surrounding the CSR subsidy payments, whether the White House has the authority to actually stop those payments, and the overall impact on the employer group health insurance market.
