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

Health benefit exchange; regulation of navigators. Prohibits an individual or entity selected to serve as a navigator in a health benefit exchange from engaging in any activity that would require an insurance agent license under Title 38.2, offering advice about which qualified health plan or qualified dental plan is better or worse for a particular individual or employer, acting as an intermediary between an employer and an insurer that offers a qualified health plan or qualified dental plan offered through an exchange, or violating certain unfair trade practice and privacy requirements. The measure also prohibits an individual or entity from claiming to be, or holding himself or itself out as, a navigator or conducting business as a navigator in the Commonwealth without having been selected as a navigator in accordance with applicable federal law and without having evidence of successful completion of requirements prescribed by the federal Secretary of Health and Human Services. The State Corporation Commission is authorized to order violators to cease and desist prohibited conduct and is required to monitor and report on the activities of navigators in the Commonwealth.
