Legislature’s Coverage Task Force Issues Report

The Maine Legislature’s Task Force on Health Care Coverage for All of Maine issued its final report last week. It has issued recommendations in three subject areas.

The first recommendations relate to the task force itself and legislative oversight of health reform proposals, including centralizing oversight of health care reform in the Insurance and Financial Services Committee, to be renamed the Committee on health Care, Insurance, and Financial Services. It also suggests reestablishing the task force in the next legislative session to continue its work.

The second set of recommendations suggest proposing legislation to address the transparency, accountability, and oversight of pharmacy benefit managers, as well as to consider changing the Maine Health Data Organization’s structure, funding, and capacity for reporting and analyzing health care costs and quality.

The third set recommend that a variety of areas be studied further. Those include prescription drug pricing, responses to changes in federal law and regulations, and looking carefully at the regulatory structure of Maine’s health insurance market.
