Sec. 38a-192-2. Method of providing access to health care
(a) In addition to the methods set forth in section 38a-177 of the Connecticut General Statutes and subject to section 38a-183 of the Connecticut General Statutes, a health care center may provide access to health care through the use of a high deductible plan.
(b) Only expenses for health care services that are generally covered by the nondeductible portion of the contract may be applied against the deductible. This restriction includes limitations on particular providers, including in-network and out-of-network providers, if any, as set forth in the contract.
(c) Deductibles shall not be limited to single benefit services only.
(d) The expense for health care services applied against the deductible shall be the actual amount paid to the provider by the member, enrollee or their designee on behalf of the member or enrollee, excluding any amounts in excess of the negotiated allowable expense and any copay amounts paid by the member, enrollee or their designee on behalf of the member or enrollee.
(e) If a high deductible health plan is intended to be federally tax qualified, there shall be disclosure on the face page of the policy in quarter inch type or contrasting color that states: "This policy is intended to be federally tax qualified. Approval by the Insurance Department does not guarantee tax qualification and members and enrollees are encouraged to seek the counsel of a tax advisor".
