This represents the latest legal effort to block Trump administration moves to roll back coverage expansions and consumer protections under the ACA. According to the lawsuit, the legislation aims to transfer a "large number of small employers and individuals into the large group market because the [Affordable Care Act's] core protections do not apply to that market".
The lawsuit filed Thursday in federal court in Washington, D.C. alleges the Department of Labor violated the Administrative Procedures Act when it promoted the rule.

The Trump administration says the regulation would help small businesses and self-employed workers to afford insurance, but the 12 Democratic state attorneys general, including California's Xavier Becerra, contend that the plans would undermine patient protections put in place by the health law. The rule accomplishes this objective by permitting a broad range of associations to offer health plans that do not have to comply with various Affordable Care Act protections.
The Attorney Generals are urging the AHP Rule be vacated. "As the President continues to do all he can to make Americans uninsured and unhealthy again, we in California will continue to fight for affordable, quality care for all". The attorneys general allege the Labor Department unlawfully redefined the term employer to expand the class of large employers to include groups formed for the primary goal of selling health insurance, which previously had been illegal. It will also encourage healthy consumers to leave the traditional health insurance market and pursue cheaper plans with fewer benefits through AHPs.

Roy Blunt, U.S. Representative Vicky Hartzler, Boone County Republicans and the Missouri Republican Party, but did not get a response. Such cases have declined since the ACA made health insurance more affordable and accessible for employers and individuals without access to large-group coverage.
