Health, Human Services and Housing Committee Hears Health Care Task Force Bill

On Tuesday, the Health, Human Services and Housing Committee heard a bill that would create a task force to review the regulations that govern Minnesota’s health plan industry. Reforms within the industry have created a complicated web of regulations that impact the coverage of health care for Minnesotans. The task force would look at these regulations, investigate the oversight structure of enforcing them, and then report its findings to the legislature in roughly one year. The task force would be made up elected officials, consumers, and industry advocates. The goal of the legislation is to maximize efficiency within the health plan industry while still providing top-notch outcomes at reasonable and stable prices.  (S.F. 474)
