AN ACT TO INCLUDE ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON HEALTH BENEFIT PLAN IDENTIFICATION CARDS.
Senate committee substitute amends the 1st edition as follows.
Deletes proposed GS 58-3-245(e), which placed additional responsibilities on every insurer offering a dental services benefit plan which provides a designation or rating or profiling system for dentists in the benefit plan network.
Revises new GS 58-3-247(a)(7), which requires insurance identification cards to contain an indication of whether the health benefit plan is a fully insured or self-funded plan, to now require plans fully-insured to be noted by using "fully-insured" rather than "NCDOI" to indicate to the consumer that the Department of Insurance is able to provide assistance regarding the regulation of the plan.
Changes the act's effective date from October 1, 2021, to January 1, 2022, applicable to contracts entered into, amended, or renewed on or after that date.
Changes the act's titles.
