MEMORANDUM

Posted: December 24, 2014 09:57 AM
From: Representative W. Curtis Thomas
To: All House members
Subject: Pregnancy as a pre-existing condition and maternity care coverage
 
In the near future, I plan to re-introduce legislation that would prevent new health insurance policies from imposing a pre-existing condition exclusion for pregnancy and would require insurers to provide coverage of essential maternity care.

My bill would remove the possibility of a health insurance provider excluding women from coverage who are or have been pregnant, experienced complications in a pregnancy, or had a caesarian section for a prior pregnancy. Also, it would ensure coverage for the most basic and necessary care for mothers, including standards for prenatal care, childbirth and post-delivery inpatient care.

Please join me in co-sponsoring this legislation.

(Formerly HB 332 of the 2013-14 Legislative Session and HB 1957 of the 2011-12 Legislative Session)



Introduced as HB289
