This
hearing is part of a study by the Maryland Insurance Administration that is required
by recent legislation that went into effect on June 1, 2015. This new law makes
it more difficult for small businesses to self-fund the insurance plans they
offer to employees. The new law changed the point at which stop-loss insurance
takes over from $10,000 to $22,500, with an aggregated attachment point of 120%
of expected claims, up from the current 115%.

Any questions for the Maryland Insurance Administration regarding this matter should be directed to Nancy Egan, Director of Government Relations by phone to 410-468-2488, or by e-mail to Nancy.Egan@maryland.gov.

More information about the scope of the study can be found in Section 2 of Chapter 494, of the Laws of Maryland 2015 at
