Secretary Azar Praises Trump Administration Expansion of Health Insurance Options

HHS Secretary Alex Azar issued the following statement regarding the Department of Labor’s release of a final rule on the regulation of Association/Small Business Health Plans:

“This action by the Trump Administration will give more Americans access to affordable, high-quality health insurance coverage. Allowing small businesses and individuals to band together to offer new options is especially important because access to health insurance for employees of small businesses has narrowed over the years, including under the Affordable Care Act. We look forward to leading continued work across the Trump Administration to open up more options for affordable, accessible, private health coverage.”
