Risk Pool is Here  August 3. 2007

Yesterday the North Carolina House voted to concur in Senate amendments to the High Risk Pool legislation (H.B. 265), thereby causing the bill to be ratified and sent to the Governor for his signature. 
 
Here's the final play by play.  The bill passed the House on May 1 with the funding mechanism tied to assessments of insurers.  The bill was sent to Senate Commerce, which on July 23 gave it a favorable report, but only after revising the funding mechanism to repeal the small business tax credit and to fund the Pool with State appropriations.  The bill then went "sideways" twice, first to Senate Finance and then to Senate Appropriations.  It was amended yet again to fund the Pool with premium tax revenues rather than State appropriations. On July 31 and August 1 the bill passed the Senate unanimously on second and third readings, and yesterday, also in a unanimous vote, the House voted to concur in changes made to the bill by the Senate.
 
Thus, premium tax revenues will fund the Pool when shortfalls arise, and as best I can tell, the small business tax credit was not repealed after all.  But I will do some checking to verify this.
 
The General Assembly adjourned late yesterday, and I will do my best to get you a comprehensive closing report next week.  But, for now, know that the risk pool concept will be implemented in North Carolina.  My thanks to those who labored in the vineyard to help bring this about, and look for my closing report next week.

HUPAC is the political action committee of the National Association of Health Underwriters (NAHU). It is the expression of our First Amendment rights to free speech and association guaranteed under the Constitution. Such political expression has become far more than a useful option for professionals in a heavily regulated business like the health insurance industry. It has become a necessity.

HUPAC is registered with the Federal Election Commission. Since NAHU and similar organizations are prohibited from making political contributions, HUPAC was created to allow contributors to combine their financial support to a candidate to achieve maximum effect.

Why is HUPAC Necessary?

Few other industries are as heavily regulated as health insurance. Therefore, your success, and that of your clients, is directly dependent upon the actions of Congress. It is absolutely critical that we help those congressional candidates who support private-sector health insurance.

How Can I Help Make a Difference?

It is imperative that NAHU members work together to counteract the strong and united forces of special-interest groups that oppose the free enterprise system of health care. HUPAC allows us to combine our resources and strength to make a difference where it will have the greatest impact for our colleagues, our clients and, above all, our country. All this can be accomplished through financial support of HUPAC. Donate today and make a difference!
