AN ACT CONCERNING THE BOARD MEMBERS OF THE CONNECTICUT HEALTH INSURANCE EXCHANGE.

AMENDMENT

LCO No.: 3847

File Copy No.: 5

House Calendar No.: 46

OFA Fiscal Note

NO FISCAL IMPACT

The amendment makes a variety of changes to the composition of the board of the Connecticut Health Insurance Exchange (exchange) . There is no fiscal impact.

In addition, the amendment allows employees of the exchange the option of participating in the state employee health plan. The current number of exchange employees is estimated to be less than 50. The annual cost to the exchange for providing health benefits, assuming the same employer share as the state, will be up to $670, 000.

It is anticipated the number of employees who would be eligible to join the state employee plan is insignificant and therefore would not impact the risk of the state employee pool or the premium equivalent for the state and employees participating in the plan.
