Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Insurance Code. Provides that a group or individual policy of accident and health insurance or managed care plan that offers a program for wellness coverage must not provide a total incentive that exceeds 30% (rather than 20%) of the cost of self-only or employee-only coverage (rather than only employee-only coverage). Provides that the incentive may be increased by up to an additional 20%, for a total incentive of 50%, to the extent that the additional percentage is in connection with a program designed to prevent or reduce tobacco use. Amends the Navigator Certification Act. Provides that certified application counselors are subject to the same certification requirements as navigators. Provides that navigators or certified application counselors may not engage in any unfair method of competition or any fraudulent, deceptive, or dishonest act or practice related to the health insurance marketplace or to that individual's or entity's absence of a conflict of interest in connection with the enrollment of any individuals or employees in a particular private health benefit plan. Provides that a navigator or certified application counselor who fails to timely file for certificate renewal shall be charged a late fee in an amount prescribed by the Director of Insurance. Revises the meaning of the terms "certified application counselor" and "navigator". Makes other changes. Effective immediately.
