H 489 – VermontStatus: Enacted
Year Introduced: 2022
An act relating to miscellaneous provisions affecting health insurance regulation. This act requires health insurers and health care providers to comply with the requirements of the federal No Surprises Act and directs the Department of
Financial Regulation (DFR) to enforce those requirements and to collaborate with other stakeholders to inform health care providers of their responsibilities under the federal Act. DFR may also refer cases of noncompliance to the federal
government or to the Office of the Vermont Attorney General. The act updates and further delineates the requirements for an association or trust to be eligible to
purchase a group health insurance policy for its members. The act eliminates DFR’s role in annual reporting on the use of the Green Mountain Care Board’s bill-back authority and clarifies the scope of DFR’s rulemaking regarding entities
that administer tax-advantaged accounts for health-related expenses. The act specifies that consent to receiving out-of-network services is a health care decision for purposes of the laws governing advance directives.
