Administration Rule on Short-Term Health Plans Released

Statement from NAIC President and Tennessee Insurance Commissioner Julie Mix McPeak:

The NAIC is reviewing the final rule on short-term health plans and the potential impact on our consumers and markets. We are very appreciative that the rule protects state regulatory authority to oversee these plans. As insurance markets vary greatly state-to-state, it is critical we have maximum flexibility to address the needs of our markets while maintaining consumer protections.
