Coverage for HIV Prevention Prescription Drugs


On May 29, 2022, HB 970 was enacted. Effective January 1, 2023, the new statute prohibits health insurers from imposing a prior authorization requirement for prescription drugs used as post-exposure prophylaxis for the prevention of HIV, if the drug is prescribed in accordance with CDC guidelines. This prohibition will apply to group health insurance policies issued in the state and which provide coverage for prescription drugs. Employer plan sponsors should verify with their insurer that the appropriate changes are made to the policy and documents.
