An Act To Amend the Definition of "Insurer" under the Maine Guaranteed Access Reinsurance Association Act

Be it enacted by the People of the State of Maine as follows:

Sec. 1. 24-A MRSA §3952, sub-§6,  as enacted by PL 2011, c. 90, Pt. B, §8, is amended to read:

6. Insurer.  "Insurer" means an entity that is authorized to write medical insurance or that provides medical insurance in this State. For the purposes of this chapter, "insurer" includes an insurance company, a nonprofit hospital and medical service organization, a fraternal benefit society, a health maintenance organization, a self-insured employer subject to state regulation as described in section 2848-A, a 3rd-party administrator, a multiple-employer welfare arrangement, a reinsurer that reinsures health insurance in this State, a captive insurance company established pursuant to chapter 83 that insures the health coverage risks of its members, the Dirigo Health Program established in chapter 87 or any other state-sponsored health benefit program whether fully insured or self-funded.


This bill removes multiple-employer welfare arrangements from the definition of "insurer" under the Maine Guaranteed Access Reinsurance Association Act.
