Mandated Benefits

SECTION 27-69-3

§ 27-69-3. Deductibles and other cost-sharing.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in any mandated benefit law, no mandated benefit law shall be construed to forbid inclusion in any health plan of a provision for any deductible and/or other cost-sharing provisions suitable to qualify a health plan, which may be purchased for use with health savings accounts for a tax preference, as a high deductible health plan or any other similar federal or state tax preference available now or in the future; provided, however, that this section shall not exempt high deductible health plans from any other provision of applicable mandated benefit laws. The commissioner shall retain jurisdiction to approve policies, rates and forms for all high deductible health plans pursuant to the provisions of this title and title 42 of the general laws.
