We want to:
- Limit the rate increases of nonprofit health insurers once they build up a large cash surplus.
- Make health insurer rate filings public, like Oregon does. Much of the data is now considered a trade secret, meaning we can't release it.
- Renew our authority -- now set to expire at the end of this year -- to review individual health insurance rates.
The second hearing -- which includes all three bills mentioned above -- is at 10 a.m. on Thursday in Hearing Room B of the John L. O'Brien Building, which is also on the capitol campus in Olympia.
