(1) allows individuals to purchase health insurance continuation benefits by having premiums deducted by their employer from their wages;
(2) offers options as to the availability and level of such benefits;
(3) specifies the periodic premium to be deducted for each option and the maximum premium payable for any such option; and

House Republican Conference Summary

The summary below was written by the House Republican Conference, which is the caucus of Republicans in the House of Representatives.

No summary available.

House Democratic Caucus Summary

The House Democratic Caucus does not provide summaries of bills.

So, yes, we display the House Republican Conference’s summaries when available even if we do not have a Democratic summary available. That’s because we feel it is better to give you as much information as possible, even if we cannot provide every viewpoint.

We’ll be looking for a source of summaries from the other side in the meanwhile.
