On April 7, 2015, Gov. Hutchison signed SB 927 into law, creating Act 1134. The law addresses health insurers and HMOs offering health plans outside the exchange as to the insurer or HMO meeting the “reasonable assurance” standard by CMS for the provision of pediatric dental coverage. Act 1134 provides that a health insurer meets the reasonable assurance standard of providing pediatric dental if a pediatric dental plan is available for purchase on the exchange and if the consumer is notified of the requirement of having to purchase pediatric dental in the EHB plan. The law becomes effective July 22, 2015.
