Small employer health insurance pooling. Authorizes employers with no more than 100 eligible employees to enter into pooling agreements under which a designated attorney-in-fact contracts on their behalf for group health insurance coverage for their employees. The small employers that are party to such an agreement constitute a single employer for purposes of pricing and other terms of the coverage under a group health benefit plan. Read the Bill »
