Donald Trump has added to his healthcare plan a “high-risk pool” for sick enrollees — a traditional Republican idea long dismissed by Democrats.
The unannounced change in the Republican presidential nominee’s healthcare plan comes as a bullet point in a new healthcare page on his website.
The new bullet point reads: “Work with states to establish high-risk pools to ensure access to coverage for individuals who have not maintained continuous coverage.”
High-risk pools offer coverage for sick people that otherwise could be denied coverage for having a pre-existing condition if ObamaCare’s protections were repealed, as Trump proposes.
