Coverage for Prescription Eye Drops

On April 17, 2018, Gov. Walker signed AB 876 into law, creating Wisconsin Act 305. The law specifies that if a health insurance policy provides coverage for prescription eye drops, the policy must allow coverage for a refill beginning when 75 percent of the days have passed from the most recent covered filling of the prescription. The requirement also applies to a self-insured health plan of the state or of a county, city, town, village or school district. This requirement is generally effective for health plans delivered, issued for delivery or renewed in Wisconsin on or after Jan. 1, 2019.
