Mandated Coverage for Fertility Instruction

On May 8, 2018, Gov. Hogan signed HB 249 into law. The new law requires group health insurance plans to provide coverage for certain instruction related to fertility awareness-based methods. “Fertility awareness-based methods” include cervical mucus method, symptom-thermal or symptom-hormonal method, the standard days method and the lactational amenorrhea method. The coverage must not be subject to participant cost sharing. It’s effective for policies issued or renewed on or after Jan. 1, 2019.
