Pennsylvania House OKs limits on health insurance
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, April 2, 2008
The Pennsylvania House has approved legislation that would impose new guidelines on health insurance plans offered to individuals and small businesses. The legislation would limit the ability of health insurers to consider certain factors such as health history in setting rates for those plans. Insurers could still consider age and geographic region in setting rates, however. The bill, which now moves to the state Senate for review, also would require insurers to spend 85 percent of premiums on healthcare.
