Bill Summary

Under current law, health insurers are permitted to consider the geographic location of the policyholder when establishing health insurance rates for individual and group insurance plans.

For an individual health plan issued, amended, or renewed on or after January 1, 2019, the bill prohibits a health insurer from considering the geographic location of the policyholder when establishing rates for the plan, thereby creating a single geographic rating area consisting of the entire state for purposes of all individual health benefit plans.
