The Trump Administration has issued new rules that will help small business employees and will expand Health Care coverage. And the good news is there is a pro-life component to boot.
A new Labor Department regulation finalized Tuesday—which will make it easier for small businesses to pool resources to negotiate with large employers—will expand health care coverage for 4 million Americans by 2023, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.
Out of that 4 million—who were previously required to buy on the individual market through Obamacare exchanges—400,000 do not have insurance, according to a May 23 CBO report.
Further, under “association health plans,” premiums are estimated to decrease between $1,900 and $4,100 per year, a senior Department of Labor official told The Daily Signal during a background briefing with two reporters Monday.
The plans, also known as AHPs, make it easier for entities to offer health insurance plans through legal arrangements allowing business associations or unrelated employers to jointly offer health insurance to members and employees.
The important aspect of this new rule for the pro-life community is that millions of Americans who were previously forced to buy Obamacare-based health insurance that funds abortions will now be able to escape that and purchase health care plans that do not require them to also pay for the destruction of unborn children.
