Coverage for Amino-Based Formula

Effective for group health insurance policies issued or renewed on or after Jan. 1, 2019, SB 299 requires certain coverage for amino-based formula for infants and children. The coverage must be for the treatment of severe protein-allergic conditions or impaired absorption of nutrients caused by disorders affecting the absorptive surface, function, length and motility of the gastrointestinal tract for insureds through the age of 20. Coverage must include medically necessary medical foods for home use that have been prescribed by a physician. The new law does not apply to persons with an intolerance for lactose or soy.
