Washington Limited Benefit Plans

Bookmark and Share

In 2004, Washington passed legislation redefining the small group market, changing group size to 2 to 50, from 1 to 50. The legislation also streamlines some administrative costs, protects portability of policies, and implements new rating factors for health insurance plans. Carriers are permitted to offer a limited- benefit package (replacing the previous requirement to offer a prescribed limited-benefit package that mirrored the Basic Health package.)
