States Can Decide If Association Health Plans Sink or Swim


Judith Wethall said that the US Department of Labor’s association health plan rule will raise challenges for plans attempting to cover employers in multiple states. “I have to look at what each state is mandating I cover. That’s not that big of a deal if I’m only in one state, but what happens when I’m offering this to employers in seven different states?” she said. “Now I have to figure out how to comply with all of those.”
