DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL


Insurance coverage for diagnostic mammograms. Prohibits dollar limits, deductibles, copayments, or coinsurance for certain diagnostic mammograms under a state employee health plan, a policy of accident and sickness insurance, or a health maintenance organization contract, that are less favorable than those allowed for breast cancer screening mammography. Requires the department of state personnel to request written guidance from the federal Internal Revenue Service concerning the status of an annual diagnostic mammogram as "preventive care" under Section 223(c)(2) of the Internal Revenue Code (for purposes of determining whether a deductible under a high deductible health plan is not required).
