Testimony in Support of HB 1001: Mandate Lite Coverage
The legislation creates mandate-lite coverage by allowing health plans to offer coverage that has
the protections of insurance without mandates that exceed federal requirements or any
requirements you impose on your own personal coverage through the Employee Retirement
System. Disclosure requirements associated with the law would ensure patients know exactly
what they are buying. Issuers are required to list any mandates that are not included in the
coverage, and notice of any change in coverage must be provided to enrollees.
