OFA Fiscal Note

FISCAL IMPACT, See Below

The amendment reduces the number of small employers eligible to participate in the state health plans. This may reduce the state administrative costs related to the expansion of the state health plans but cannot be determined at this time. Limiting the additional participants able to join the existing state employee health plan could potentially impact the existing pool. The cost of the state employee health plans is based upon the demographics and claims experience of the existing composition of state employees and retirees. To the extent that limiting additional covered lives impacts the loss ratio of the plans, a resulting impact may be experienced on the plans' costs to the state.

The preceding Fiscal Impact statement is prepared for the benefit of the members of the General Assembly, solely for the purposes of information, summarization and explanation and does not represent the intent of the General Assembly or either chamber thereof for any purpose.
