HEALTH INSURANCE RESTRICTIONS AND LIMITATIONS CLARIFICATION ACT OF 2009 -- (House of Representatives - March 30, 2009)

BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. SCALISE. Mr. Speaker, I rise in support of H.R. 1253, the Health Insurance Restrictions and Limitations Clarification Act of 2009.

This bill will allow purchasers of health insurance to better understand what they are buying. At its core, this bill is about transparency for the consumer. And that is a good thing.

This bill does not in any way alter current insurance requirements or limitations. This bill merely says that if an insurer wants to restrict or limit benefits, it must inform their enrollee prior to enrollment that it may so restrict or limit benefits.

I wish to commend Congressmen Burgess and Stupak for their work on this bill. Mr. Speaker, I urge Members to support this legislation.

I reserve the balance of my time.
