Executive Order on Healthcare
Brought to you by Sullivan Benefits & United Benefit Advisors
On October 12, 2017, the White House released an Executive Order, signed by President Trump, titled " Promoting Healthcare Choice and Competition Across the United States ."
It is important to note that the Executive Order (EO) does not implement any new laws or regulations, but instead directs various federal agencies to explore options relating to association health plans, short term limited-duration coverage (STLDI), and health reimbursement arrangements (HRAs), within the next 60 to 120 days.
The Department of Labor is ordered to explore expansion of association health plans (AHPs) by broadening the scope of ERISA to allow employers within the same line of business across the country to join together in a group health plan. The EO notes employers will not be permitted to exclude employees from an AHP or develop premiums based on health conditions. The Secretary of Labor has 60 days to consider proposing regulations or revising guidance.

Being mind-full right out of the gate may just determine your success. So when the Halloween candy shows up on your kitchen counter, your co-workers desk and every other service or business office you pass by you may want to think twice before grabbing just one or two pieces of candy!
