The Delaware River Basin Commission will hold a public hearing on Wednesday, November 14, 2018 beginning at 1:30 p.m. A business meeting will be held the following month on Wednesday, December 12, 2018 beginning at 10:30 a.m. The hearing and meeting are open to the public and will be held at the Washington Crossing Historic Park Visitor Center, 1112 River Road, Washington Crossing, Pennsylvania 18977. For more information, visit the DRBC web site at www.drbc.gov or contact Pamela M. Bush, Commission Secretary and Assistant General Counsel, at 609‑883-9500 extension 203 and pamela.bush@drbc.gov.
Section 5 of the Act adds new 18 Del.C. §3342B to the Uniform Health Policy Provisions Law codified at 18 Del.C. Chapter 33, Subchapter 1. Section 6 of the Act adds new 18 Del.C. §3556A to Chapter 35 of the Delaware Insurance Code, which concerns group and blanket health insurance. Both new provisions require, inter alia, that insurance carriers "provide coverage for chronic care management and primary care at a reimbursement rate that is not less than the Medicare reimbursement for comparable physician services."
The Department is therefore proposing new 18 DE Admin. Code 1319, Arbitration of Disputes between Carriers and Primary Care and Chronic Care Management Providers, to implement the requirements of 18 Del.C. §§3342B and 3556A.
On August 3, 2018, the federal government issued a rule that will apply to STLD health insurance policies sold on or after October 2, 2018. See 83 Fed. Reg. 38212 (the Final Rule). The Final Rule would extend the period during which plans can be sold from three to 12 months and would allow for consecutive renewal of short-term policies. The relaxation in renewal requirements allows consumers to enroll in the policies for a period arguably longer than "short term" and may re-enroll in the policies for an indefinite period of time.
The Final Rule expressly describes short-term coverage as "a type of health insurance coverage that was primarily designed to fill temporary gaps in coverage that may occur when an individual is transitioning from one plan or coverage to another plan or coverage (emphasis added)." Id. at 38213.
Elsewhere in this edition of the Register of Regulations, the Department published an emergency order by which it adopted new 18 DE Admin. Code 1320 - Minimum Standards for Short-Term, Limited Duration Health Insurance Plans, to ensure that carriers offering STLD health insurance plans comply with minimum consumer protection and notification standards so as to partially prevent the erosion of the stability of Delaware's HIM and to protect Delaware consumers from being potentially mislead into purchasing a STLD health insurance plan without being fully informed of its coverage limits or applicability.
The Department is therefore concurrently proposing new 18 DE Admin. Code 1320 - Minimum Standards for Short-Term, Limited Duration Health Insurance Plans with the purpose of permanently codifying the regulations that are the subject of the Commissioner's Emergency Order adopting these same regulations.
Notice is hereby given that the Board of Examiners of Constables, in accordance with 10 Del. C. Ch. 27 proposes to amend the following adopted rules in 24 DE Admin. Code 2400 Board of Examiners of Constables: Rule 1.0 Licensing. If you wish to view the complete Rules, contact Ms. Ashley Hughes at 302-672-5337. Any persons wishing to present views may submit them in writing, by December 3, 2018, to Delaware State Police, Professional Licensing Section, P. O. Box 430, Dover, DE 19903. The Board will hold a meeting Wednesday, December 19, 2018, at the Tatnall Building, 150 Martin L. King, Jr. Boulevard South, Room 112, Dover, DE.
The Commission has promulgated proposed regulations to implement and administer the DSIC (the "Proposed Regulations"), 26 Del. Admin. Code ch. 1010. The Proposed Regulations establish filing deadlines for DSIC applications; effective dates of new DSIC rates; requirements for filing a DSIC application; a review and approval process; and annual reconciliation and audit procedures.
Under Title 17 of the Delaware Code, Section 141, as well as 29 Delaware Code Section 8404(8), the Traffic Operations and Management Section of the Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT), has the authority to regulate the traffic impacts of special events that affect the safe movement of traffic on the State’s transportation network, and adopted the Special Events Policies and Procedures – Traffic Management regulation. The Department seeks to adopt revisions to this regulation to waive temporary traffic control costs for special events held by an organizer exempt from federal income tax under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3) or if the applicant and organizer is a State Agency, County, incorporated Municipality, school district, or accredited college or university. The revisions allow organizers not meeting the conditions above to request a waiver if proceeds to an event are donated to a 501(c)(3) organization or if the need for temporary traffic control is created by impacts associated with a Department project.
