Summary of the Introduced Bill

HB 1827 -- Group Health Insurance

Sponsor:  Wasson

For health insurance plans issued to an association covering both
small and large employers, this bill allows the difference in
premium rates charged between similar classes of business to
exceed 20% if the Director of the Department of Insurance
determines it would be in the public's interest.  The director
may also approve additional classes of business if the plan is
underwritten and rated as a single employer, has a uniform health
plan design, is guaranteed issuance to all members, and complies
with all other federal and state insurance requirements.  The
bill also reduces the membership requirement from 100 to 50
members for policies issued to associations.
