AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 18 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO GENETICS BASED DISCRIMINATION.
This Act prohibits discrimination in life insurance based on genetic characteristics, genetic information, or the result of any genetic test that is not in a medical record as a basis for an individual's medical diagnosis or the basis of a medical diagnosis included in an individual's pertinent family history. In addition, this Act prohibits a person engaged in the business of life insurance from requesting, requiring, or purchasing information obtained from an entity providing direct-to-consumer genetic testing. This Act also makes corresponding corrections to § 2317 of Title 18 by revising the heading for clarity and the definition of "insurance" to conform with the terms and definitions used in Title 18. This Act is known as "The Ericka Byler Act".
