Report Title: Health; Hawaii Health Connector; Hawaii Health Insurance Exchange Special Fund; Connector Legislative Oversight Committee; Hawaii Health Insurance Exchange Sustainability Fee; Sustainability Plan Budget Request; Board of Directors; Appropriation ($)
Description: Establishes the connector legislative oversight committee. Establishes the Hawaii health insurance exchange special fund. Beginning January 1, 2015, assesses a Hawaii health insurance exchange sustainability fee of no more than .345 per cent of the premiums derived from the sale of comprehensive medical insurance plans, including dental plans, in the State, to be deposited into the Hawaii health insurance exchange special fund. Notes that the current two percent surcharge authorized by the connector on plans sold through the connector shall cease to be collected once the Hawaii health insurance exchange sustainability fee is instituted. Requires the board of directors of the connector to prepare and submit to the legislative oversight committee a fully documented biennial sustainability plan budget request for the connector. Permits the legislature to annually appropriate funds collected from the sustainability fee to the Hawaii health insurance exchange. Clarifies that the connector must submit the results of the connector's annual audit to the legislature. Amends the composition and procedures of the board of directors of the Hawaii health connector. Appropriates funds to the Hawaii health insurance exchange special fund. Requires the Hawaii health insurance exchange special fund to reimburse the general fund over a five-year period once the sustainability fee is instituted and collected and the sustainability plan is adopted.
