The Netherlands reduces discount for collective health schemes

Connecticut Enacts Paid Family and Medical Leave

The Netherlands has reduced the maximum discount applicable to collective health insurance schemes to 5% (down from 10%) effective 1 Jan 2020. Employers often offer collective health insurance schemes as fringe benefits to employees. The government is also requiring providers of health insurance to reduce the number of available collective health insurance schemes, warning that the discount could be abolished if insufficient progress is made.
