H.R. 372: Competitive Health Insurance Reform Act of 2017

This was a vote to pass H.R. 372 in the House.

H.R. 372 amends a section of the McCarran-Ferguson Act of 1945 which exempted the insurance industry from the Sherman Act and the Clayton Act. The Act ensures that health insurance issuers are subject to the same antitrust and unfair trade practices laws that all businesses have had to comply with. This would subject insurers to federal laws against price fixing, bid rigging, or market allocations to the detriment of competition and consumers. However, the antitrust exemption is retained for certain collaborative activities between health insurance businesses.
