Coverage for Prescription Drugs to Treat Diabetes, HIV and AIDS


On May 16, 2022, Gov. Hogan signed HB 1397 into law. Effective for policies issued on or after January 1, 2023, the new law prohibits insurers from imposing a copayment or coinsurance greater than $30 for a 30-day supply of insulin drugs or $150 for a 30-day supply of a prescription drug to treat diabetes, HIV or AIDS. The requirements 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.
