The Trump administration on Aug. 10 gave insurers three additional weeks to submit premium rate requests for coverage sold under the Affordable Care Act, according to a memo from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. The original deadline of Aug. 16 was pushed back to Sept. 5 for plans sold on Healthcare.gov.

At the same time, insurers are waiting to find out what will happen to subsidies they have been receiving under the law. President Donald Trump has said he would consider cutting them off. Some states have requested that insurers file rates assuming that the payments would be made, while others have asked them to file two separate rates.

The rate filings are requests and are not final until they are approved by states. The final deadline for insurers to sign contracts with states remains at Sept. 27, and open enrollment is still slated to begin on Nov. 1.
