Senate Democrats Block Bill That Would Have Let Insurers Sell Non-ACA-Compliant Health Plans
On Wednesday, Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) blocked an attempt by Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) to pass a bill (HR 3522) that would have let insurers sell employer-based health plans that do not comply with the Affordable Care Act's minimum coverage standards through 2018. The House last week voted 247-167 to approve the legislation.
