On June 2, 2016, Gov. Malloy signed HB 5233 into law, creating Public Act No. 16-82. This law requires certain individual and fully-insured group health insurance policies to cover, at the option of the covered woman, mammograms provided by breast tomosynthesis. Breast tomosynthesis is a three-dimensional mammographic method. By law, such policies must cover baseline mammograms for women age 35 through 39, and annual mammograms for women age 40 or older. This law is effective Jan. 1, 2017.
