House of Representatives
Session of 2019 - 2020 Regular Session


Posted: October 25, 2019 05:16 PM
From: Representative Valerie S. Gaydos
To: All House members
Subject: Association Health Care Plans
In the near future, I will be introducing a piece of legislation designed to assist small businesses in providing health care benefits to their employees.

Specifically, this legislation will provide a mechanism for employers to join together to offer quality health insurance as a benefit for their employees, some for the first time. When small businesses group together, they are able to spread out the risk across the group and negotiate for discounted health insurance coverage the same way large businesses currently purchase health benefits on the group insurance market. This will provide a decrease in costs for small businesses and puts the employer in a competitive position to maintain and attract a talented workforce.

I hope you will join me in supporting this important piece of legislation. Please do not hesitate to contact my office with any questions.

Introduced as HB2200
