On January 22, 2018, President Trump signed the Continuing Resolution (CR) short-term spending bill into law, which provides a six-year extension of the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), and delays the Cadillac Tax, Medical Device Tax, and the Health Insurance Industry Fee.

The Joint Committee on Taxation found the suspension of these ACA fees would mean lost revenue of $3.8 billion for the Medical Device Tax, $14.8 billion for the Cadillac Tax delay, and another $12.7 billion for the one-year suspension of the health insurer tax.

The Health Insurer Industry Fee is in effect for 2018. However, the short-term spending bill puts a moratorium on the fee for calendar year 2019.
