Health Insurance Bills



A House-Senate conference committee is expected to meet soon to iron out the differences between two health insurance premium relief bills in St. Paul.

State Representative Steve Drazkowski is the author of an amendment to the House bill that takes away the mandate that buyers of health coverage are required to purchase 68 state-mandated coverages...many of which they don't need.

Drazkowski says buyers of health coverage, such as an elderly person, could choose which of the types of coverage they want under his amendment.

House-Senate conferees are expected to be announced this week.
