  376.987.  High deductible health plans and establishment of health savings plans to be offered as options — definitions — rulemaking authority. — 1.  The board shall offer to all eligible persons for pool coverage under section 376.966 the option of receiving health insurance coverage through a high-deductible health plan and the establishment of a health savings account.  In order for a qualified individual to obtain a high-deductible health plan through the pool, such individual shall present evidence, in a manner prescribed by regulation, to the board that he or she has established a health savings account in compliance with 26 U.S.C. Section 223, and any amendments and regulations promulgated thereto.

  2.  As used in this section, the term "health savings account" shall have the same meaning ascribed to it as in 26 U.S.C. Section 223(d), as amended.  The term "high-deductible health plan" shall mean a policy or contract of health insurance or health care plan that meets the criteria established in 26 U.S.C. Section 223(c)(2), as amended, and any regulations promulgated thereunder.

  3.  The board is authorized to promulgate rules and regulations for the administration and implementation of this section.  Any rule or portion of a rule, as that term is defined in section 536.010, that is created under the authority delegated in this section shall become effective only if it complies with and is subject to all of the provisions of chapter 536 and, if applicable, section 536.028.  This section and chapter 536 are nonseverable and if any of the powers vested with the general assembly pursuant to chapter 536 to review, to delay the effective date, or to disapprove and annul a rule are subsequently held unconstitutional, then the grant of rulemaking authority and any rule proposed or adopted after August 28, 2007, shall be invalid and void.
