Administration Unveils Health Options for Small Firms

The Trump administration is rolling out new options for small employers to use tax-free accounts for providing health coverage to workers, officials said Monday. The idea is to expand so-called “health reimbursement arrangements” to allow employees to buy their own individual health insurance policies. Employers could also pair the accounts with workplace health plans, allowing workers to use the money for additional benefits such as dental care. Officials from the departments of Treasury, Labor, and Health and Human Services provided a broad overview of the proposed regulations Monday evening ahead of an official announcement, expected Tuesday. Critics say the approach will undermine traditional job-based coverage. (Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar, Associated Press)
