Concerning credit for the deductible amount paid by a covered person when a health insurance carrier becomes insolvent.
2024 Regular Session
Health Care & Health Insurance
Bill Summary

For small group and individual health benefit plans, if an individual who is entitled to receive benefits or services under a health benefit plan has incurred any out-of-pocket expenses, including payments for a deductible or other coinsurance amount, under the health benefit plan during a plan year, and the individual's health insurance carrier exits the health insurance market and can no longer provide coverage to the individual, the bill requires the individual's new health insurance carrier to credit all of the out-of-pocket expenses paid by the individual in accordance with the original health benefit plan in the given plan year to the new health benefit plan if the individual enrolls in the new health benefit plan in the established special enrollment period.

The bill grants rule-making authority to the commissioner of insurance.
