As you may know, there have been Executive Orders issued by the President and rules issued by the Department of Labor to encourage the formation of Association Health Plans (AHP). The principal engine of the AHP is the Multiple Employer Welfare Arrangement (MEWA) which allows for the combining of small employer groups to into a much larger group.
California has had an overall negative historical experience with MEWAs, does not allow for the formation of new MEWAs, and therefore will not allow for the formation of new AHPs at this time.
We continue to offer our traditional services to Association members who are involved with small group health insurance, and we work with the major health insurance companies and HMOs to provide the best possible solutions for your healthcare needs.
