HB 257 (2019)
House/Senate Bill: House
Description: Declares that health coverage purchased through a qualified purchasing alliance shall be considered by the Department of Insurance to be large group coverage, and makes related changes to some other health insurance laws. Large group coverage generally has fewer regulations, for example allowing insurance to consider health status and/or experience in setting pricing. Members of a purchasing alliance may be small employers that belong to the same trade group or association. This bill would therefore give small employers more access to less regulated health insurance.
