White House Supports Additional Type of Group Health-Care Insurance Plan

by Kathie Felix | Jan 17, 2018
Late last month, the White House proposed new rules that would make it easier for small businesses, sole proprietors, and individuals to group together in “association” to buy insurance in the large group market.
