HB 2948 – IllinoisStatus: Inactive / Dead
Year Introduced: 2021
Amends the Illinois Insurance Code. Sets forth provisions concerning eligibility for health savings accounts. Provides that an HSA-eligible high deductible health plan is exempt from specified requirements but only until the deductible has been met and only to the extent necessary to allow the policy to satisfy specified federal criteria. Provides that for any HSA-eligible high deductible health plan issued, delivered, amended, or renewed on or after January 1, 2022, a company shall expressly identify the policy as HSA-eligible in all policy forms and in all sales and marketing materials. Provides that for high deductible non-HSA policies issued, delivered, amended, or renewed on or after January 1, 2022, the company shall use the term “non-HSA” in any name or title of the product found in its policy form, as well as in all sales and marketing materials. Provides that beginning January 1, 2022, if a company offers any HSA-eligible HDHP in the large group market, then it shall also offer in the same market at least one high-deductible non-HSA policy. Defines “HSA-eligible HDHP” and “high deductible non-HSA policy”. In provisions concerning coverage for screening by low-dose mammography, provisions concerning coverage for contraceptives, and provisions concerning coverage for whole body skin examination, removes provisions stating that the mandates do not apply to required coverage to the extent such coverage would disqualify a high-deductible health plan from eligibility for a health savings account pursuant to specified federal law. Makes a conforming change in the Health Maintenance Organization Act. Amends the Health Maintenance Organization Act and the Voluntary Health Services Plans Act to provide that health maintenance organizations and voluntary health services plans shall be subject to provisions of the Illinois Insurance Code concerning nonparticipating facility-based physicians and providers and provisions concerning eligibility for health savings accounts. Effective January 1, 2022.
