Donald Trump's proposed healthcare plan is flawed and doesn't make sense, experts said.

"It makes no sense," Kaiser Family Foundation vice president Gary Claxton told the Washington Examiner.

Urban Institute fellow John Holahan told the website the Republican presidential nominee's proposal is "inconsistent."

"It seems completely inconsistent to me," Holahan said. He added that the plan might work if Trump is "thinking that if we didn't have a lot of insurance regulations people with pre-existing conditions might be able to get coverage at a lower cost [through] an out-of-state policy."

Trump spoke about his ideas on healthcare during Sunday night's debate with Democrat Hillary Clinton. As part of his plan, insurance companies would be allowed to compete across state lines — a practice that occurs now, but not in every case.

Trump said that would help lower costs by providing more options for consumers.

Trump also wants to repeal Obamacare, a point he made during the debate. Clinton said she wants to fix the federal healthcare program, which President Barack Obama originally signed into law in 2010.
