House Joint Resolution 13
149th General Assembly (Present)
Becomes effective upon date of signature of the Governor or upon date specified
REQUIRING ANY INSURANCE COMPANY OR HEALTH SERVICE CORPORATION SELLING INDIVIDUAL AND SMALL GROUP MARKET INSURANCE PRODUCTS IN DELAWARE TO FILE A REPORT DETAILING HOW THEY DISTRIBUTED SAVINGS TO DELAWARE CONSUMERS IN PLAN YEAR 2019 FROM THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT’S ONE YEAR MORATORIUM OF THE INSURANCE COMPANY FEE CREATED BY THE PATIENT PORTABILITY AND AFFORDABLE CARE ACT OF 2010 TO DELAWARE CONSUMERS IN PLAN YEAR 2019.
In January of 2018 the federal government passed the Federal Register Printing Savings Act, which included a moratorium in calendar year 2019 on a fee paid by health insurance companies or health service corporations to the federal government. The State of Delaware wants to ensure that savings received by the health insurers are passed along to Delaware consumers who buy health insurance plans in the individual market both on and off the health exchanges created by the Patient Portability and Affordable Care Act of 2010. This resolution requires health insurers who received this moratorium to file a report with the Secretary of the Department of Health and Social Services and the Insurance Commissioner of Delaware no later than January 2, 2019 outlining how they passed along savings to Delaware consumers.
