Association Health Plans Emergency Rule (R 2018-15)

The federal association health plan rule allows new “Pathway 2” association health plans to file forms and rates with the Office of the Insurance Commissioner beginning September 1, 2018. There are no current state rate or form rules related to "Pathway 2" AHP filings. An emergency rule is needed to establish requirements for a rate and form filing that is unique to this new type of association health plan. This emergency rulemaking will ensure that regulations are in place in order to respond to and review "Pathway 2" association health plans filed with the Office of the Insurance Commissioner for sale in Washington state.
