Don't believe everything you hear about Senate Bill 478
April 21, 2017
The Oklahoma Legislature is currently debating a bill that could help Oklahomans find more affordable health insurance. Senate Bill 478 authorizes the Insurance Commissioner to negotiate compacts with other states to allow insurers from those states to sell individual health insurance policies in Oklahoma. Oklahomans face an individual health insurance market with fewer options and higher premiums than ever before, so I support this effort to give our citizens more plans to choose from.
The bill has passed out of the House Insurance Committee and should be up for a House floor vote sometime...
