ACT NO. 103


Health insurance; prosthetic devices

This act requires health insurance plans to provide coverage for prosthetic devices to at least the same extent as does Medicare while allowing them to limit coverage to the most appropriate model that is medically necessary to meet a patient’s medical needs. It also prohibits health insurance plans from imposing greater financial or access burdens for prosthetic devices than they do for most other benefits under the plan.

Effective Date: October 1, 2008 and applicable to health insurance plans on and after that date as the insurer offers, issues, or renews the plan, but not later than October 1, 2009.
