H.B. 19: Health Insurance Right to Shop Amendments

House Bill 19, Health Insurance Right to Shop Amendments, sponsored by Representative Norman Thurston (R), requires PEHP to set up a “Right to Shop” program.

A “Right to Shop” program is an incentive-based program that will allow employees to find lower cost health care options.  Those who utilize the lower cost health care options provided by PEHP’s Transparency Tool will be rewarded with a financial incentive.  Possible financial incentives for the employee may include: a discount on their premium, a rebate, a reduction of out-of-pocket costs, or another financial reward.
