SUMMARY AS ENACTED WITH GOVERNOR'S RECOMMENDATION: (all summaries)

Individual health insurance coverage; requirement to obtain.  Provides that a resident of the Commonwealth shall not be required to obtain or maintain a policy of individual insurance coverage except as required by a court or the Department of Social Services where the individual is named a party in a judicial or administrative proceeding. This applies regardless of whether the person has or is eligible for health insurance coverage under any policy or program provided by or through his employer or a plan sponsored by the Commonwealth or the federal government. The measure also states that no provision of Title 38.2 renders a resident liable for any penalty, assessment, fee, or fine as a result of his failure to procure or obtain health insurance coverage. The measure does not apply to individuals voluntarily accepting coverage under a state-administered Medicare or Medicaid program, or to students required by institutions of higher education to be insured as a condition of enrollment. The measure states that it does not impair the rights of persons to privately contract for health insurance for current or former family members. SB 283, SB 311 and SB 417 are identical.
