Health services plans; effects of actions of other states. Requires the State Corporation Commission (SCC) to conduct a proceeding or examination to review and evaluate the effect of a law or other regulatory action of another state that requires a health services plan operating in the Commonwealth to distribute or reduce its surplus or to provide a program or benefits for the residents of the other state. Currently the SCC may, but is not required to, conduct such a proceeding or examination only when another state enacts a law providing a program or benefits for the residents of the other state. The measure authorizes the SCC, if it finds that the other state's action is harmful to the interests of residents of the Commonwealth, to (i) prohibit the health services plan from distributing or reducing its surplus for the benefit of residents of another state or the District of Columbia or (ii) take any other action the SCC finds necessary to protect the interests of the residents of the Commonwealth. The measure also states that a health services plan shall not distribute or reduce its surplus pursuant to a law of or regulatory action taken in another jurisdiction except with the approval of the SCC. The measure contains an emergency clause.
