Georgia Health Insurance Aetna

The legislature adjourned for 2010 after a number of negative Georgia health insurance bills were defeated, including a proposed tax on health plans and restrictions on rental networks. Among the legislation that did pass was, most significantly, a bill that would apply state prompt-pay laws to self-funded plans. The bill also contains an extension of time for payment of paper claims and a compliance threshold of 95 percent before any fines are imposed. Several interested parties, including Aetna, are working with the Governor’s office to encourage a veto of the bill, but this is unlikely.
