Laws and rules

Click on a proposed rule title below for details.

Amend: OAR 836-010-0011

The proposed rule updates the Certificate of Compliance sample form required as a part of each rate and form filing. The form sample is currently an exhibit within OAR 836-010-0011, this rulemaking will remove the exhibit from the rule and place it on the Division of Financial Regulation website. In addition, the proposed rule updates the form to correct the reference to the Oregon Insurance Division to the Division of Financial Regulation in order to reflect the official name change that occurred in January of 2016. Currently, a rulemaking is necessary to replace references to the Oregon Insurance Division with the Division of Financial Regulation because this form is an exhibit within the rule. This rulemaking will allow for future updates to the form to be carried out without having a formal rulemaking process.

The Agency requests public comment on whether other options should be considered for achieving the rule’s substantive goals while reducing negative economic impact of the rule on business.

Adopt: OAR 836-053-0011

Amend: OAR 836-053-0013

These proposed rules establish the requirement that the standard bronze health benefit plan be HSA eligible, in order to promote consumer choice. HSA plans are high deductible plans that allow consumers to pay for medical expenses with tax-free dollars. Consumers are responsible for initial health care costs until the deductible is met. The proposed rules further clarify that the insurer or health care service contractor shall clearly indicate on any applicable plan and benefits template or other plan or product specific filing document that the plan is HSA eligible.

The proposed rules also bring the standard bronze and standard silver plans into compliance with federal law by amending the exhibits for the plans for plan years beginning on or after January 1, 2018, to meet federal minimum actuarial value (AV) requirements. The amended rule does not contain new requirements, but rather adjusts certain benefits within these plans.
