SD Bill Would Regulate Health Insurance Helpers

SD Bill Would Regulate Health Insurance Helpers
PIERRE, SD -

State Sen. Al Novstrup wants the state to regulate the so-called navigators who help uninsured people sign up for insurance under President Barack Obama's health care overhaul.

The Aberdeen Republican says his proposal provides additional protection for people seeking insurance.

But critics of Novstrup's bill and similar efforts in other states say such regulations are designed to add red tape that will hinder efforts to enroll people for insurance policies available through online marketplaces.

Novstrup's bill would require the state Insurance Division to register navigators, make sure they have completed training and check whether they have been convicted of crimes. Registration would cost $50.

The Senate Commerce and Energy Committee has not set a hearing date for the bill.
