  1. Subscribe to the NAHU Healthcare Happy Hour podcast on iTunes and Stitcher to get notified as soon as the weekly episode is posted.
  2. NAHU submitted comments on the proposed expansion of short-term plans, recommending that plans clearly describe their limitations, deference be given to state regulators, and the maximum duration be limited to six months with one renewal.
  3. The IRS announced that family high deductible health plans with a health savings account may treat $6,900 as the maximum contribution, overriding the $6,850 maximum that was established last year under the tax reform act.
  4. NAHU successfully advocated against an amendment to opioid response legislation that would have enforced employer penalties for inadequate mental health networks that may have resulted in fewer voluntary offerings of mental healthcare resources.
  5. The IRS issued guidance today that allows small employers to take advantage of the small business health care tax credit for 2017 and beyond, if there are no SHOP plans available in the county and if the employer's plan meets requirements for the tax credit in place prior to 2014.

SB136 – Broker fee & fee disclosure bill passed the House of Representatives 63-0 with 2 excused this morning and now proceeds to the Governor for action.  

WHATS NEXT:
1) Get your thank-you cards out and be sure to drop a note of thanks to your house representative and a HUGE thank you to the amazing bill sponsors, Senator Tim Neville, Representative Tracy Kraft-Tharp and Representative Lang Sias for their hard work, dedication and leadership on this issue. 

Mail them to:
Colorado General Assembly

2) When the bill is signed by the Governor your CSAHU board will work closely with the Division of Insurance as they work on rules for when a broker can charge a fee to individual customers.
