California and several other states won't follow a new Donald Trump administration rule reducing the amount of time consumers will have to buy health insurance for 2018 under the Affordable Care Act.

Dr. Dylan Roby, an associate professor of Health Services Administration, told California's Orange County Register that the federal rule is a political attempt to undermine the viability of the Obamacare insurance exchanges.

“It’s no big secret that the Trump administration isn’t a big fan of the Affordable Care Act or the individual market that it created,” Dr. Roby told the paper. “There’s just this general intent of the administration to reduce enrollment, reduce … subsidies and make it a little bit harder for people to enroll.”
