House Moves Again on Limited McCarran-Ferguson Repeal, Passing Bill

NU Online News Service, March 22, 2:22 p.m. EST

The House took action again today on repealing the McCarran-Ferguson antitrust exemption for health insurers by passing the larger bill to which the repeal amendment was attached.

Gosar’s McCarran-Ferguson amendment was revised earlier in the week to cite the definition of health insurance in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the I.R.S. Code to limit its scope specifically to health insurers.

To further insulate other forms of insurance, other provisions were added to specifically exempt life and P&C insurance.
