Timothy Costa, principal in the Firm's federal government relations practice, was quoted in The Street article, "Trump's Quick Health Care Moves Have Serious Ramifications for Hospitals, Medicaid-Heavy Insurers."

Timothy Costa, a principal in Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney's government relations practice, said White House officials and lawmakers aren't likely to take dramatic action immediately because insurers are well into the process of designing proposed policies and premiums for 2018, which must be approved by state insurance officials this spring.

"There's an understanding that some of this stuff is baked-in because of the timelines everyone has to deal with," Costa said. As a result, much of the ACA framework "is going to continue for certain period of time," he said.
