Plans Must Provide Coverage for Occupational Therapists

On June 2, 2017, Gov. Cooper signed HB 208 into law, amending North Carolina General Statute 58-50-30. That particular statute addresses a participant’s right to choose services of certain health-care providers. Through the amendment, the type of health-care providers for whom plans must provide coverage is expanded to include licensed occupational therapists. This change is effective for North Carolina policies issued, renewed or amended on or after Oct. 1, 2017.
