Trump Administration Unveils Health Care Options For Small Companies

The proposal is aimed at two types of companies: small firms that are not required to offer health insurance and medium-sized firms that usually only offer their workers a single plan. The biggest change involves expanding the use of tax-free HRAs to allow more workers to buy their own health insurance.  The proposed rule undoes Obama administration guidance that had prohibited employers from funding HRAs to pay for workers’ individual health insurance premiums.  For more information, see the AP, CNN, The Hill, and the Washington Examiner.
