SOME INTERESTING INSURANCE RELATED LEGISLATION THAT PASSED IN TEXAS
-August 7, 2013

Here are three bills that passed in the 83rd, Texas legislative session.

SB 1286; allows either the client or the PEO to purchase wc insurance and protect both entities. Used to be that only the PEO could purchase this coverage, and if it did not, the client was exposed to risk associated with being a non subscriber.

SB 852, allows insurance companies to post the text of certain insurance policies on line and only provide the insured with a certificate of coverage evidencing the existance of coverage. Makes it much easier for the insured to locate the actual policy anytime.

SB 1795 will license health care navigators hired by the federal government to advise consumers about their health care options.
