Association Health Care Plans – Passage


Passage of the bill that would exempt health care plans sponsored by trade and business associations from most state laws and regulations. The bill would allow an association sponsoring a health care plan to have full discretion to choose the health benefits included in the plan, as long as the plan would still meet certain statuary minimums. The sponsored health care plans could not make membership, payment or coverage conditional on factors related to the health of a member company's employees.
