National Health Council Statement on the Department of Labor Association Health Plan Final Rule

The following statement is from NHC’s Chief Executive Officer, Marc Boutin, JD:

The Department of Labor and Trump Administration have failed to keep their promise to people with preexisting conditions. Despite overwhelming outcry from the vast majority of the health care community, the Association Health Plan final rule will take people with chronic conditions and disabilities back to the days of unaffordable plans and even coverage denials. This administration must do more to ensure meaningful access to care for those who need it most.
