An Act To Create Transparency with Regard to Large Employers in the State with Workforce Members Who Receive Public Benefits
Sec. 1. 22 MRSA §3195 is enacted to read:
§ 3195. Employer disclosure regarding MaineCare beneficiaries
In preparing the report, the department shall make industry-wide comparisons by sorting employers into industry categories based on available information.
This bill requires the Department of Health and Human Services to submit a quarterly report to the Governor and the Legislature that includes the information for each employer in the State that has 50 or more employees who are either MaineCare beneficiaries or who are the spouses or custodial parents of MaineCare beneficiaries. For each such employer, the report must include information on the numbers of employees who are MaineCare beneficiaries, spouses of MaineCare beneficiaries, custodial parents of MaineCare beneficiaries, full-time employees and part-time employees. The report must also include information on whether the employer offers health insurance benefits to full-time employees, part-time employees, employees' spouses or employees' dependents, and the cost to the State of providing MaineCare benefits for the employer's employees and enrolled dependents listed as total cost and per capita cost.
