(c) Insurance plans and offerings must be effective July 1, 2009.

 

(d) If the board does not offer coverage by December 15, 2010, the board expires and this section expires on that date.

(b) If an eligible employer provides health coverage or money to purchase health coverage to eligible employees, the coverage must be provided or purchased only through the health plans or self-insured health benefit plans offered by the board.

 

(c) Nothing in this section affects the right of each eligible employer to determine, through collective bargaining under the public employment labor relations act:

 

(1) the employer's eligibility requirements regarding the terms and conditions under which employees, dependents, retirees, and other persons are eligible for health coverage from the employer;

 

(2) how much of the premium charged for the insurance will be paid by the employer and how much will be paid by the eligible person; and

(f) The board may determine whether the plans should be fully insured through a health carrier licensed in this state, self-insured, or a combination of those two alternatives. If at any time any plan offered by the board is not fully insured, the board and the self-insured health benefit plan are subject to section 471.617 and any rules adopted under that section, including Minnesota Rules, chapter 2785.

 

(g) Any health plan or self-insured health benefit plan must include disease management and consumer education, including wellness programs and measures encouraging the wise use of health coverage, to the extent determined to be appropriate by the board.

 

(h) Upon request of the board, entities that are providing or have provided coverage to employees of eligible employers within two years before the effective date of this section, shall provide to the board at no charge nonidentifiable aggregate claims data for that coverage. The information must include data relating to employee group benefit sets, demographics, and claims experience. Notwithstanding section 13.203, Minnesota service cooperatives must also comply with this paragraph.

Nothing in this section prevents an eligible employee who otherwise qualifies for payment of cash in lieu of insurance on June 30, 2009, from continuing to receive this payment.

(1) the rate of assessment for losses of the comprehensive health insurance plan under section 62E.11, subdivision 5, to be paid by the pool that would provide amounts equal to the assessments that would have been paid by providers of coverage to eligible employers if the pool had not been established; and

 

(2) the rate of tax under section 297I.05, subdivision 5, paragraph (b), that would provide amounts equal to the premiums tax that would have been paid by providers of coverage to eligible employers if the pool had not been established. This estimate must include the separate amounts of the tax that would have been paid under (i) section 297I.05, subdivisions 1 to 4, and (ii) section 297I.05, subdivision 5.

 

(b) The board shall provide the study to the commissioners of commerce and revenue by January 1, 2009.

Subd. 10. Applicability of data practices laws. The board is a government entity subject to chapter 13.

 

Sec. 4. Minnesota Statutes 2006, section 62E.02, subdivision 23, is amended to read:

"Contributing member" means those companies regulated under chapter 62A and offering, selling, issuing, or renewing policies or contracts of accident and health insurance; health maintenance organizations regulated under chapter 62D; nonprofit health service plan corporations regulated under chapter 62C; community integrated service networks regulated under chapter 62N; fraternal benefit societies regulated under chapter 64B; the Minnesota employees insurance program established in section 43A.317, effective July 1, 1993; and joint self-insurance plans regulated under chapter 62H; and the Minnesota School Employee Insurance Board created under section 62A.662. For the purposes of determining liability of contributing members pursuant to section 62E.11 payments received from or on behalf of Minnesota residents for coverage by a health maintenance organization or a community integrated service network, or the Minnesota School Employee Insurance Board shall be considered to be accident and health insurance premiums.

 

Sec. 5. Minnesota Statutes 2006, section 62E.10, subdivision 1, is amended to read:

 

Subdivision 1. Creation; tax exemption. There is established a Comprehensive Health Association to promote the public health and welfare of the state of Minnesota with membership consisting of all insurers; self-insurers; fraternals; joint self-insurance plans regulated under chapter 62H; the Minnesota employees insurance program established in section 43A.317, effective July 1, 1993; the Minnesota School Employee Insurance Board created under section 62A.662; health maintenance organizations; and community integrated service networks licensed or authorized to do business in this state. The Comprehensive Health Association is exempt from the taxes imposed under chapter 297I and any other laws of this state and all property owned by the association is exempt from taxation.

 

Sec. 6. Minnesota Statutes 2006, section 62E.11, subdivision 5, is amended to read:

 

Subd. 5. Allocation of losses. (a) Each contributing member of the association shall share the losses due to claims expenses of the comprehensive health insurance plan for plans issued or approved for issuance by the association, and shall share in the operating and administrative expenses incurred or estimated to be incurred by the


Journal of the House - 75th Day - Monday, May 21, 2007 - Top of Page 7536

association incident to the conduct of its affairs. Claims expenses of the state plan which exceed the premium payments allocated to the payment of benefits shall be the liability of the contributing members. Contributing members shall share in the claims expense of the state plan and operating and administrative expenses of the association in an amount equal to the ratio of the contributing member's total accident and health insurance premium, received from or on behalf of Minnesota residents as divided by the total accident and health insurance premium, received by all contributing members from or on behalf of Minnesota residents, as determined by the commissioner. Payments made by the state to a contributing member for medical assistance, MinnesotaCare, or general assistance medical care services according to chapters 256, 256B, and 256D shall be excluded when determining a contributing member's total premium.

 

(b) In making the allocation of losses provided in paragraph (a), the association's assessment against the Minnesota School Employee Insurance Board must equal the product of: (1) the percentage of premiums assessed against other association members; (2) the rate certified by the commissioner under section 62A.662, subdivision 9, paragraph (c); and (3) premiums received by the Minnesota School Employee Insurance Board. For purposes of this calculation, premiums of the board used must be net of rate credits and retroactive rate refunds on the same basis as the premiums of other association members.

 

Sec. 7. Minnesota Statutes 2006, section 297I.05, subdivision 5, is amended to read:

 

Subd. 5. Health maintenance organizations, nonprofit health service plan corporations, and community integrated service networks, and the Minnesota School Employee Insurance Board. (a) A tax is imposed on health maintenance organizations, community integrated service networks, and nonprofit health care service plan corporations. The rate of tax is equal to one percent of gross premiums less return premiums on all direct business received by the organization, network, or corporation or its agents in Minnesota, in cash or otherwise, in the calendar year.

 

(b) A tax is imposed on the Minnesota School Employee Insurance Board under section 62A.662, to the extent the board receives amounts for coverage not otherwise subject to tax under this section. The rate of tax is equal to the percentage rate certified by the commissioner under section 62A.662, subdivision 9, paragraph (d), multiplied by the gross premiums less return premiums received in the calendar year.

 

(c) The commissioner shall deposit all revenues, including penalties and interest, collected under this chapter from health maintenance organizations, community integrated service networks, and nonprofit health service plan corporations in the health care access fund.

PETITIONS AND COMMUNICATIONS

 

 

The following communication was received:

 

 

STATE OF MINNESOTA

OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR

SAINT PAUL 55155

 

May 15, 2007

 

The Honorable Margaret Anderson Kelliher

Speaker of the House of Representatives

The State of Minnesota

 

Dear Speaker Kelliher:

 

I have vetoed and am returning H. F. No. 946, Chapter No. 84, the Omnibus Transportation Finance Bill.

 

With more than $5 billion in tax and fee increases, this bill would impose an unnecessary and onerous financial burden on Minnesota citizens and would weaken our state's economy. The entire array of tax increases in this bill would cost an average family in Minnesota up to $500 per year.

 

As I clearly stated to the legislative conference committee that crafted this legislation, I remain opposed to increasing the tax burden on Minnesota families. With gasoline prices rising to historic highs, a gas tax increase of up to 7.5 cents per gallon is untimely and misguided.

 

While the media have focused on the gas tax increase, other provisions in this bill need to be highlighted, including:

 

A 0.5% sales tax increase in the seven metro counties and any adjacent county that chooses to join in without a voter referendum. This will result in Minneapolis and Hennepin Counties having one of the higher sales tax rates in the nation.

 

A 0.5% sales tax increase in Greater Minnesota counties, subject to voter referendum.


Journal of the House - 75th Day - Monday, May 21, 2007 - Top of Page 7569

A new $20 excise tax on motor vehicle purchases.

 

Removal of the requirement that metropolitan counties that impose a wheelage tax ($10) offset that amount on their property tax levy, effectively increasing property taxes.

 

Removal of caps on "license tabs" which limit the tax to $189 in the second year after a car is purchased and $99 in the third year, instituted at the recommendation of Governor Ventura during the 2000 legislative session, subjecting car owners to significant increases.

 

I am disappointed that the conference committee did not adopt my transportation proposal and once again overreached. This type of overreaching has resulted in a transportation funding stalemate at the Capitol for too many years. Steady progress that is achievable is preferable to no progress at all.

 

Along with the numerous tax increases, the following provisions in the bill are also objectionable:

 

I remain opposed to the provision creating a new joint powers entity in the metropolitan area with powers to distribute transportation funds to counties, cities, and the state. The proposed governing board would create a duplicative and unnecessarily complicated structure and add unnecessary process at the local, state and federal levels. Separating transportation spending decisions from the regional transportation planning function - as H. F. No. 946 would do - would be a step backward (recall the Regional Transit Board). This provision is bad public policy and would likely feature parochial decision making over an objective, regional perspective for transportation and transit planning, capital investments, and operations.

 

I also remain opposed to the provision that severely restricts the extent to which a county regional rail authority may participate in financing the construction and operation of a transit project. This provision will have a negative impact on Minnesota's ability to compete for federal capital transit funding for future "new starts" projects, and it could also have an immediate negative - or even fatal - impact on the Northstar commuter rail project. This provision would necessitate a restructuring of the Northstar capital financing plan that has been submitted to the Federal Transit Administration. The restructuring effort could delay the project, putting in question the project's ability to remain eligible for federal funding.

 

The bill includes many items on which we share some agreement, such as a significant level of trunk highway bonding to accelerate long-delayed priority highway projects, the distribution of constitutionally dedicated motor vehicle sales taxes (MVST) with a ratio of 60 percent for roads and highways and 40 percent for transit, and the dedication of sales tax revenues on leased vehicles to highways and transit. However, I strongly urge the Legislature to adhere to my earlier proposal to include leased vehicle sales tax revenue in the base of the constitutionally dedicated MVST fund, and distribute the overall transit portion 38 percent for Metro area transit and 2 percent for Greater Minnesota transit. This formula will ensure that transit systems across the state will have additional funds to meet their future operating obligations.

 

I am issuing my veto promptly because I believe there is still time this session for the Legislature to pass a significant transportation financing bill - without tax increases - that I can sign into law. Investing in transportation is important to the citizens of Minnesota and a top priority of my administration. I urge the Legislature to approve my administration's transportation financing proposal and help us move forward in addressing Minnesota's transportation needs.

 

 

Sincerely,

 

Tim Pawlenty

Governor
