Senate Bill 245 addressing abortion, abortion related services, cost sharing and utilization management, including prior authorizations
The law does not require a health plan to cover an experimental or investigational treatment. Abortion is defined as any medical treatment intended to induce the termination of a pregnancy except for the purpose of producing a live birth.
The law provides that for a high deductible health plan, the cost-sharing limits described in the law shall apply once an enrollee’s deductible has been satisfied for the benefit year.
