What Employers Need to Know about the DOL's Final Rule on Association Health Plans

Duration: 75 Minutes
The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) has issued a final rule expanding the opportunity of unrelated employers of all sizes (but particularly small employers) to offer employment-based health insurance through Association Health Plans (AHPs). Significantly, the final rule applies "large group" coverage rules under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) to qualifying AHPs.
DOL’s Final Rule on Association Health Plans
Product ID: 509748
The webinar will focus on how the regulations would change the definition of "employer" to allow employer groups or associations to be treated as a sponsor of a single multiple-employer employee welfare benefit plan or group health plan.

Objectives of the Presentation
  • How the newly finalized DOL rule changes AHPs by broadening the definition of employer
  • What "commonality of interest" means under the new rule
  • How the new rule treats AHPs formed under earlier law
  • What to look out for since states can still regulate AHPs
  • When a self-employed individual can qualify for AHP membership
  • How the rules for multiple employer welfare arrangements (MEWAs) impact AHPs
  • How small employers stand to gain by offering benefits through an AHP
  • Discuss pointers, potential pitfalls, and best practices when forming an association health plan
  • When the final rule takes effect for fully insured and self-funded plans
  • And much more!
Why Should you Attend
This 75-minute webinar will help employers understand how the final regulations that would enhance the ability of employer groups or associations to join together for the purpose of providing health benefits. All associations - new or existing - are expected to be able to begin creating fully-insured Association Health Plans on September 1, 2018. Under the rule, the DOL has loosened the requirement for "commonality of interest" in determining who can join an AHP. The members now can be in a common industry or share common geography by being in the same state or metropolitan region. As a result, more employers can join together and be treated as one large employer for purposes of providing health coverage. Even sole proprietors without employees may qualify as "working owners" who can be treated as both employer and employee.

Join us for an informative webinar by employee benefits attorney Janette Levey Frisch who will discuss about the new DOL rule and how it affects all employers.
