This finally may be the year Congress authorizes association health plans, which would allow small businesses to participate in health insurance plans through trade associations that span state lines. The House passed the bill in July, so it now moves to the Senate, where similar bills have died in recent years. But the outlook is more promising this year.

Currently, health insurance plans must be individually approved state-by-state, subject to each state's insurance laws, which sometimes mandate coverage for certain conditions and treatments.
