2007 Senate Bill 418

Senate Roll Call 292: The substitute was adopted

To replace the previous version of the bill with one that does not include the state-sponsored "stop loss" policy provisions of the original bill, but does include the provisions that make it easier for schools and local governments to form insurance purchasing pools, and also the provision that would require the Michigan Education Special Services Association (MESSA), an insurance agency subsidiary of the MEA teachers union that provides health insurance to most school districts, to release individual school district claims history data. This information is said to be necessary to allow other insurance providers to bid on a district's health insurance purchases.
