- imposes a preexisting condition exclusion;
- reduces or denies a claim or loss incurred or disability commencing under the policy on the grounds that a disease or physical condition existed prior to the effective date of the coverage; or
- considering whether an individual or dependent has a preexisting condition for the purpose of setting deductibles, copays, or coinsurance under the plan.
The bill would become effective on the first day of the 4th month beginning after publication.
This bill has not been scheduled for a hearing.
