To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (H. 3301), memorializing Congress to correct the disparate treatment of insured and self-funded Health Care, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same, and recommend that the same do pass:
SAMUEL R. FOSTER, for Committee.
MEMORIALIZING CONGRESS TO CORRECT THE DISPARATE TREATMENT OF INSURED AND SELF-FUNDED HEALTH CARE BENEFITS BY PERMITTING STATE REGULATION OF SELF-FUNDED HEALTH CARE PLANS.
Whereas, the 1974 Federal Employee Retirement Income Security Act subjects "insured" health care plans to state regulation while exempting "self-funded" health care plans; and
Whereas, the preemption provision of this federal act prevents the General Assembly from enacting laws to protect participants of "self-funded" plans who may not be protected adequately under the limited federal standards; and
Whereas, the lack of state regulation places participants of "self-funded" health care plans at a greater risk than those enrolled in "insured" plans. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina memorialize Congress to correct the disparate treatment of "insured" and "self-funded" health care benefits by permitting state regulation of "self-funded" health care plans.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the members of this state's congressional delegation.
