Memorandum


    Due to provisions in the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), uncertainty exists on how new mandates for health insurance benefits will impact essential health benefits and state governments in the future.
    
    The expanded insurance benefits provided for in HB 2887 will have a fiscal impact on public and private insurance carriers, including PEIA. Person submitting Fiscal Note: Melinda A. Kiss
