Subchapter A. Small Employer Health Insurance

Portability and Availability Act Regulations

28 TAC §§26.14 and 26.27

The Commissioner of Insurance adopts the repeal of §§26.14 and 26.27 concerning small and large employer health insurance regulations. The sections are adopted without changes to the proposal as published in the November 12, 2004 issue of the Texas Register (29 TexReg 10441).

The repealed sections are replaced by new §§26.14 and 26.27 which will, in conjunction with other amendments adopted to Chapter 26 that are published elsewhere in this issue of the Texas Register , assure that Chapter 26 of the department's rules conform to current statutory requirements
