Update on H.R. 1206

Yesterday, the Congressional Budget Office released a “score” of H.R. 1206, the bipartisan legislation to remove agent and broker compensation from the health reform law’s medical loss ratio requirements. Unfortunately, it was not very favorable. NAHU has issued this press release in response...  Read More
