    Executive Order Seeks to Expand Health Insurance Plans Largely Exempt from ACA Regulations

    During the first week of October, President Trump signed an executive order directing the HSS, Labor and Treasure secretaries to consider ways to expand insurance offerings that are not subject to many of the ADA’s regulations. The order itself makes no direct changes, but as various departments decide on the details through the normal rulemaking process, the proposed direction could eventually lead to substantial shifts in the health insurance market.  See article and infographic here

As a result, the U.S. Small Business Administration, the U.S. Department of Health Human and Services, and the Small Business Majority have teamed up to offer free weekly webinars covering the various critical mandates that impact business owners.
