Health benefit plans; large and small employers. Deletes provisions that as of January 1, 2016, changed the definition of a "large employer," for purposes of a group health plan or health insurance coverage, from an employer who employed an average of more than 50 employees to an employer who employed more than 100 employees during the preceding calendar year. The definition of "small employer" is correspondingly revised to include employers who employ an average of 50 or fewer employees, which prior to January 1, 2016, was the threshold for delineating large employers from small employers. The measure has an emergency clause. The measure is a recommendation of the Health Insurance Reform Commission. Read the Bill »
