Senate Concurrent Resolution 6
150th General Assembly (Present)
No further action required by the General Assembly
ENCOURAGING THE STATE TO APPLY FOR A STATE RELIEF AND EMPOWERMENT WAIVER UNDER SECTION 1332 OF THE PATIENT PROTECTION AND AFFORDABLE CARE ACT TO CREATE A STATE REINSURANCE PROGRAM.
This Concurrent Resolution recognizes that all Delawareans deserve affordable health care, only 1 commercial insurer currently sells health insurance plans on Delaware's Marketplace, and that premiums for health insurance plans sold on the Marketplace could be reduced if the State creates a reinsurance program under a State Relief and Empowerment Waiver under Section 1332 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act ("Section 1332 Waiver"). This Concurrent Resolution also strongly urges the Governor and Secretary of the Department of Health and Social Services to apply for a Section 1332 Waiver and that a program fund be created if the Section 1332 Waiver is granted, to provide capital to operate and administer a reinsurance program.
