    April 9, 2019 — Committee Vote: Short-Term Health Insurance Rule — Short-Term Insurance Plan Definition
    Roe, R-Tenn. —

    Amendment that would replace the provision in the bill that would prohibit the implementation of the short- term limited duration insurance rule, with language that would define short-term limited duration insurance plans as plans that are effective for less than 12 months after the original date of the contract.

    The amendment also would amend current law to ensure that short-term, limited duration insurance plans are renewable. It also would specify that an individual may have the option to decline to renew during the enrollment process, and to require the contract to specify whether or not the individual opted to renew.

    It also would require that the provisions of the amendment apply with respect to plan years beginning on or after Jan. 1, 2020.
