FSI Responds to District Court Ruling on Association Health Plans

March 29, 2019

Yesterday, the U.S. District Court in the District of Columbia issued its decision to block the U.S. Department of Labor’s efforts to allow the development of Association Healthcare Plans (AHP). The Financial Services Institute has issued the following statement regarding the decision:

“While we are disappointed in the ruling, we intend to continue our work to ensure our members one day have access to the quality, affordable healthcare they need and deserve. We urge the Trump Administration to appeal this ruling. What’s at stake is access to quality, affordable healthcare plans for millions of Americans, and thousands of our members. We have made access to better healthcare for financial advisors a priority for the last two years, making it a top issue during last year’s Capitol Hill Day, writing a comment letter to the Department of Labor supporting the rule and participating in a coalition that wrote an amicus brief to the court. We will continue to champion this issue. While we wait for an appeal to the ruling, we will continue our work behind the scenes to make better healthcare for our members a reality.”
