Affordable Care Act protections (R 2019-10)

SHB 1870 (leg.wa.gov) (Chapter 33, Laws of 2019) codifies several provisions of the Affordable Care Act into state law. Some provisions of SHB 1870 authorize the Office of the Insurance Commissioner to engage in rulemaking necessary to implement the legislation. Existing rules may need to be amended to be consistent with SHB 1870, and new rules may be required.
