Members of the Ohio House have voted 89-0 to pass S.B. 5, a bill that would give health insurers in the state more flexibility and impose new rules on health discount program organizers.
The state Senate already has passed the bill, which was introduced by state Sen. Jay Hottinger, R-Newark, Ohio.
One major section of the bill would set requirements for discount medical plans.
The bill would exclude health insurers and pure prescription drug discount programs from the definition of “discount medical plan.”
