Empowering Plans: P57 - AHPs: Will They Live Up to the Hype?

Have you heard?  In 2019 it will be easier than ever to form a self-funded “Association Health Plan” (AHPs) … So what?  In the words of  Jurassic Park’s Dr. Ian Malcolm (a/k/a Jeff Goldblum), we have been so preoccupied with whether or not we could, we didn’t stop to think if we should.  This podcast discusses the pros and cons, as well as benefits and hurdles the final rules have created for these new AHPs.  From compliance with State MEWA laws to obeying federal laws such as ERISA’s consumer protections (including the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act [MHPAEA]), we dissect why we must slow our run towards AHPs to a measured walk.
