Establishes enhanced short-term health insurance plans: This bill amends sections 41-5203, 41-5207, Chapter 52, Title 41 and adds a new section of Idaho code to define and provide for the purchase of enhanced short-term health insurance plans. On August 3, 2018, the U.S. Departments of the Treasury, Labor and Health and Human Services issued new rules to amend the definition of short-term, limited-duration insurance to lengthen the maximum duration of short-term health insurance. This bill defines enhanced short-term health insurance and brings Idaho in compliance with new federal rules that went into effect on October 2, 2018. Enhanced short-term plans will have an initial period of less than twelve (12) months and allows an individual to renew the policy for up to the number of months established by the Idaho Department of Insurance. This bill establishes a new section of code to allow the director of the Idaho Department of Insurance to adopt rules and standards for enhanced short-term health insurance plans.
