Rep. Loudermilk (R-GA) issued the following statement after supporting a bill to help small business owners lower health insurance costs for their employees:

“For 15 of the 20 years I owned a small business, my employees received affordable health insurance through a group plan. However, even though my employees were promised they could keep their existing health care plan under the ACA, the government determined their insurance wasn't good enough and forced them into more expensive plans with less coverage. Obamacare was a complete disaster for my employees and my business. The House has passed legislation that will allow businesses to join together to form group health insurance plans for their employees. As promised, we are removing government restrictions, giving these business owners freedom to negotiate lower costs of health care for their employees.”

Background

The Small Business Health Fairness Act, H.R.1101, allows for the creation of Association Health Plans (AHPs), giving small businesses more power to negotiate lower health care costs, leveling the playing field with larger companies and unions.
