House Bill 319
149th General Assembly (2017 - 2018)
The General Assembly has ended, the current status is the final status.
AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 18 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO EXPERIMENTAL TREATMENT HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE.
This legislation creates a benchmark for determining when a treatment or service is no longer experimental or investigational. Essentially, when Medicare determines that a treatment is safe for its population, commercial insurers in Delaware may no longer deny coverage on that basis. This will remove inconsistencies for properly-evidenced treatments between payers.
