AHPs Offer Additional Escape Valve for Businesses Feeling Squeeze Under Rising Health Care Costs

Arlington, VA – Following the Trump administration’s announcement this morning of a finalized rule expanding association health plans, Freedom Partners Executive Vice President Nathan Nascimento issued the following statement:

“With too many U.S. businesses feeling the squeeze under the skyrocketing costs of Obamacare, we applaud the Trump administration’s continued efforts to expand choice in  health insurance markets that help to drive down costs for small businesses and the self-employed. By allowing association health plans to form, businesses and sole-proprietors who can’t afford to offer group insurance are provided a much-needed escape valve. We encourage the administration to keep up efforts to offer relief from one-size-fits-all regulations through a robust final rule on short-term, limited-duration plans that allows those plans to be renewable.”
