The Chairman of the Senate Health and Human Services committee, Senator Clark Jolley, R-Edmond, is pleased to announce an interim study approved by President Pro Tempore Glenn Coffee.

Jolley requested an interim study to consider the issues raised relating to interstate purchasing of health insurance policies.

“In the insurance industry, there are artificial barriers that exist between state lines which result in a lack of competition,” said Jolley. “If we allow the Insurance Commissioner to negotiate compacts with other states, it allows consumers to have better choices and better protection in their individual circumstances. Many health care advocates have championed such reform, and I thank President Pro Tem Coffee for recognizing the importance of this issue and the fact it warrants further study.”
