Mandated Benefits

Position: NCCBI opposes in principle any efforts to mandate or require employers to provide specific benefit coverage under group health care plans. Employers are encouraged to offer health care coverage consistent with their ability to afford them and to promote good health.

Explanation: An increasing number of proposals for the mandating of benefits have been considered by the General Assembly in recent years. The cost ramifications of mandating health care benefits have resulted in a growing concern on the part of the business community, particularly when viewed in the context of present health care cost increases.

Therefore, each proposal for mandated benefits should be examined carefully in light of this concern.
