The Labor Department released the Association Health Plan (AHP) final rule on June 19, 2018 in an effort to provide more affordable coverage options for small-business owners, their employees and families. This week’s special edition NAHU Healthcare Happy Hour features a special discussion with NAHU CEO Janet Trautwein to review the 198-page rule and what it will mean for your clients and prospective clients who may be considering AHPs. Janet walks through the rule, describing how these plans will work, what employers need to qualify under the rule, the rule’s staggered implementation and how it will work for those consumers who are enrolled in AHPs under the old rules, state regulation of these plans as they cross state-lines, and how NAHU helped to influence the rule-making process.
