Two bills in the NH Senate address association health plans, which would allow companies to band together to purchase health insurance.
One, Senate Bill 227, introduced by Sen. Jeb Bradley, R-Wolfeboro, but drawn up by the NH Insurance Department after months of stakeholder meetings, would regulate association health plans. The bill tries to strike a balance between creating more flexible plans for small groups that would allow self-insured people to participate as well, but leave enough protections for consumers, and to prevent it from draining healthy populations out of the current risk pool.
