Members of the National Guard called up to active duty sometimes get stuck with buying health insurance for a couple of months.

A bill introduced Wednesday in the Legislature would make sure they don't have to worry about it.

The bill calls for reimbursing health insurance cost for guard members called into active duty for more than 30 days.

Senator Floyd Vrtiska of Table Rock says the measure is designed to cover the transitional period when a person is no longer covered by their employer's insurance but before military insurance kicks in.

Vrtiska says it is his understanding that the military would repay any cost associated with the bill, so it would not cost the state any money.
