Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Comprehensive Health Insurance Plan Act. Changes the funding sources for deficits for both federally eligible individuals and all other eligible individuals to the Plan fund and assessments on insurance companies, including stop-loss insurers (now, assessments only for federally eligible individuals and General Assembly appropriation for other eligible individuals). Provides that assessments of stop-loss insurers shall be made on the basis of the number of covered lives. Requires the Comprehensive Health Insurance Board to develop baseline statistics for asthma, diabetes, coronary artery disease, and congestive heart failure as part of any disease management program instituted by the Board. Requires participation in a disease management program established by the Board by any covered person diagnosed with one or more of these diseases and provides penalties for refusal to participate. Requires the Board to contract with the Plan administrator to provide 24-hour telephone access to trained nurses in order to facilitate better patient self-care and to reduce avoidable care and emergency room visits. Requires an amount of money representing the total net receipt of moneys from health insurers by the State as unclaimed property to be deposited into the Plan fund as provided in the Uniform Disposition of Unclaimed Property Act. Amends the Uniform Disposition of Unclaimed Property Act to require the State Treasurer to deposit 95% of the amount in the trust fund exceeding $2,500,000 into the State Pensions Fund, and to deposit 5% of that amount into the Plan fund. Effective immediately.
