DOL Issues Final Rule for Expanded Association Health Plans
On June 19, 2018, the Department of Labor (DOL) finalized regulations expanding the use of association health plans by small employers and self-employed individuals. The final rule implements a portion of the Executive Order President Trump signed in October 2017 that also called for expansion of short-term limited-duration health insurance policies and for permitting health reimbursement arrangements to be used to purchase individual health insurance policies. The final rule tracks the proposed rule that was issued in January 2018, but includes certain clarifications and modifications as discussed in this Aon bulletin.
The bulletin is available here.
