U.S. State Insurance Laws
Currently 15 states have active legislation for expanded breast imaging insurance coverage (varying in scope). News! Insurance legislation in Connecticut and Georgia was signed into law this week:
- Connecticut law (effective 1/1/2023), extends breast imaging coverage for women ages 35 and under if they are believed to be at increased risk.
- Georgia law (effective 1/1/2023), covers diagnostic imaging, and supplemental breast imaging based on NCCN guidelines, with cost-sharing requirements “no less favorable than the cost-sharing requirements applicable to screening mammography.”
