The bill would have allowed insurers authorized to transact business in Georgia to offer Georgians individual accident and sickness policies that are approved for issuance in other states. The bill would have required that the out-of-state policies contain disclosures notifying consumers that the policies may be governed by the laws of other states and that the benefits may be different from other policies the consumer could have purchased. The sale of the out-of-state policies would have first been approved by the Georgia Commissioner of Insurance, and the Commissioner would also have had to adopt rules and regulations to implement the bill.
