AGO Opinions with Topic: CHIROPRACTORS
AGO 1991 No. 20 >  June 7, 1991
HEALTH - INSURANCE - HEALTH INSURANCE POOL - CHIROPRACTORS - ASSESSMENT OF HEALTH CARE SERVICE CONTRACTOR THAT PROVIDES COVERAGE EXCLUSIVELY FOR CHIROPRACTIC SERVICES
HEALTH ‑- INSURANCE ‑- HEALTH INSURANCE POOL ‑- CHIROPRACTORS ‑- ASSESSMENT OF HEALTH CARE SERVICE CONTRACTOR THAT PROVIDES COVERAGE EXCLUSIVELY FOR CHIROPRACTIC SERVICES RCW 48.41.090 provides for assessment of members of the Washington State Health Insurance Pool based on the number of persons insured under the member's health plan.  A member is not subject to assessment if the coverage provided does not fall within the definition of "health plan."  RCW 48.41.030(9) defines "health plan" as an arrangement that includes coverage for both hospital and medical benefits.  Thus, coverage that is limited exclusively to chiropractic services with no hospital services is not a health plan and a member is not subject to assessment with respect to persons so covered.
