To The Point Podcast: Federal Court Strikes Down Association Health Plan Rules

Recently, a federal judge ruled that parts of the Trump administration’s 2018 final rule on association health plans were invalid. The court then directed the Department of Labor to reconsider how the remaining provisions of the final rule are affected. The court called the final rule an “end-run” around the Affordable Care Act and said that the DOL exceeded its authority under ERISA.

Listen to this podcast to find out what parts of the rule were struck down, and how the DOL’s response may impact the future of AHPs.
