17B:27A-19.11 Carrier offering plans pursuant to C.17B:27A-17 et seq. may offer additional plan with certain limited benefits.
5. In addition to the standard health benefits plans offered by a carrier on the effective date of this act, a carrier that writes small employer health benefits plans pursuant to P.L.1992, c.162 (C.17B:27A-17 et seq.) may also offer one or more of the plans through the carrier's network of providers, with no reimbursement for any out-of-network benefits other than emergency care, urgent care, and continuity of care. A carrier's network of providers shall be subject to review and approval or disapproval by the Commissioner of Banking and Insurance, in consultation with the Commissioner of Health, pursuant to regulations promulgated by the Department of Banking and Insurance, including review and approval or disapproval before plans with benefits provided through a carrier's network of providers pursuant to this section may be offered by the carrier. Policies or contracts written on this basis shall be rated in a separate rating pool for the purposes of establishing a premium, but for the purpose of determining a carrier's losses, these policies or contracts shall be aggregated with the losses on the carrier's other business written pursuant to the provisions of P.L.1992, c.162 (C.17B:27A-17 et seq.).
