Trump’s Group Health Plan Rules Struck Down as ACA ‘End-Run’

Trump’s Group Health Plan Rules Struck Down as ACA ‘End-Run’U.S. District Judge John Bates in Washington on Thursday blocked new rules governing so-called association health plans, or AHPs, which let businesses and individuals band together to create group health plans that offer less expensive coverage than the ACA -- but without some of its protections. It follows twin rulings Wednesday by another Washington judge who blocked administration-sanctioned plans to impose work requirements for some Medicaid recipients in Kentucky and Arkansas. The Justice Department has hardened its opposition to Obamacare in separate litigation, and Trump is seeking to make health care a centerpiece of the Republican agenda going in to the 2020 campaign season.
