Statement from Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Administrator Seema Verma
on signing of Executive Order 

“Today’s announcement represents an important step in providing Americans with more affordable health insurance coverage options by offering relief from Obamacare’s oppressive mandates and regulations that are driving up costs and driving down the quality of their healthcare. This Executive Order will promote affordable coverage options for Americans, whether they work for small businesses, large employers, or need to purchase coverage on their own. It will empower employers to offer more affordable health coverage and to provide their employees with the opportunity to exercise greater choice and control over their healthcare.”
