HB 1784 – New Hampshire

Status: Inactive / Dead
Year Introduced: 2018

COMPARISON SHOPPING FOR HEALTH CARE PROCEDURES: This bill establishes procedures for cost comparison for certain health care procedures and requires insurance carriers to establish an incentive program for its enrollees who undergo comparison shopping for such procedures. The Insurance Department states the cost comparison and incentive programs may lead to lower claim costs as insureds are incentivized to select lower cost providers. However, the bill requires out-of-network services to be covered at the in-network cost sharing in certain circumstances. This may impact negotiated costs for certain services which may result in higher claim costs. Any changes in health insurance premiums may impact county and local health insurance expenditures by an indeterminable amount. The Department is required to perform periodic reporting starting on December 1, 2020.
