REQUIRED EXPLANATION OF REQUEST
  The Department of Insurance respectfully requests Controlling Board approval to increase appropriation authority in the amount of $395,905 for FY 2018 in ALI 820606 fund 5540.

 
  The Department of Insurance is required by House Bill 49 of the 132nd General Assembly to file a 1332 innovation waiver with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) by January 31, 2018. In order to complete the waiver application, including waiving the individual and employer mandate as required by state law, an RFP was released through the Department of Administrative Services for actuarial services.

Through that RFP and competitive bidding process Oliver Wyman was awarded the contract and will begin work immediately to help the Department of Insurance model likely scenarios under a waiver as well as help drafting the application and legislation that will need to be passed by the Ohio General Assembly giving Ohio the authority to implement the waiver once granted by HHS.
