HB 615 – IdahoStatus: Inactive / Dead
Year Introduced: 2018
HEALTH CARE – Adds to existing law to provide that the Director of the Department of Insurance shall permit health benefit plans that are not ACA compliant, to provide a direct primary care program for Medicaid participants, and to provide that the State Department of Health and Welfare shall seek certain waivers or amendments to waivers. The new statute would provide flexibility from individual and small employer insurance plans requirement for essential health care benefits, state community and age ratings, and actuarial value regulations. Idaho insurance companies would be able to offer less-expensive, tailored insurance plans. It would also allow Idaho to apply for a 1332 State Innovation Waiver, only if the federal government requires a waiver for Idaho to sell non-ACA plans.
