Coverage for Mastectomies Is Revised

On July 2, 2018, Gov. Raimondo signed HB 7002, which modified the coverage requirements for mastectomies. Plans that provide medical and surgical benefits with respect to mastectomies are permitted to apply annual deductibles and coinsurance provisions to coverage for mastectomies consistent with other benefits covered under the plan only until Jan. 1, 2019.

This bill contains no new employer obligations, but employers with fully insured plans in Rhode Island should review the new laws to better understand the required changes.
