The attached Benefits Bulletin details the recent district court ruling on March 28, 2019 that invalidated the association health plan rule, which was finalized in June of 2018. The basis of the court’s decision was that the rule took an unreasonable interpretation of Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) and that the actions by the Department of Labor (DOL) were an attempt to undermine the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
The attached Brief provides details on the association health plan rule, why the Court made the ruling, and potential future of the association health plan rule.
