TAHP’s HB 290 RFI Response

As the statewide trade association representing health insurers, HMOs, Medicaid managed care, and other health plans that serve over 20 million Texans, the Texas Association of Health Plans (TAHP) is committed to ensuring that Texas families and employers have access to affordable, comprehensive, and high-quality coverage. Thank you for this opportunity to provide feedback on HB 290, 88th Legislative Session. This bill impacts self-funded MEWA plans, and specifically bona fide association plans. Generally speaking, our recommendation is to treat these plans in the same manner as fully funded MEWAs to maximize consistency and ensure a level playing field across plan types.
