Washington, DC—The Department of Health and Human Services has begun a review of the Delta health insurance policy that was used by President Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka to buy health insurance in 2016, according to a letter obtained by Axios.
The policy was used in the Ivanka Trump Health Benefit Plan, a plan created by the Trump administration in the months leading up to Trump’s inauguration in January 2020.
The letter from the HHS Secretary’s Office to the Office of Personnel Management says that “an administrative review of this policy is underway to ensure that it complies with applicable law and regulations.”
The Delta Health Insurance policy was sold by a company called DeltaDental.
It was the second Delta insurance policy sold by Trump’s eldest daughter, after she purchased health insurance through the company’s parent company, the Trump Organization, in the spring of 2017.
In June 2017, Ivanka Trump purchased her own health insurance, the Delta Dental, in a separate purchase.
The letter does not specify when the review will be completed, but says it could take “several months” to complete.
In addition to a request for information about the policy, the HHS office asks for comments on whether DeltaDentals policies should be changed.
DeltaDental declined to comment on the HHS review.
A spokesperson for Ivanka Trump did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.
Ivanka Trump, who was named White House senior adviser and daughter of Trump’s late father, President Donald J. Trump, is now the executive vice president of the Trump International Hotel and Tower, where the president lives and has an office.
The Trump administration also said it was reviewing Delta Dents insurance policies sold by companies such as UnitedHealth Group, which also is owned by the president’s eldest son, Eric Trump.
The HHS office says it will “evaluate the legality of these policies in light of the HHS guidance.”
