AN ACT CONCERNING ASSESSMENTS FOR IMMUNIZATIONS

SUMMARY: This act removes the cap on the amount each Connecticut insurance company and HMO must pay for immunization services that the Department of Public Health provides. Prior law capped the amount paid by any one company at 25% of the expenditures of the Insurance Department and the Office of the Healthcare Advocate. Under the act, each company pays a proportionate share of the total due from all insurers and HMOs. That proportion is based on the company's share of total premium taxes and other charges the state imposes on all insurers and HMOs for business conducted in Connecticut during the previous calendar year. The fee is deposited in the General Fund.

EFFECTIVE DATE: July 1, 2006
