The Office of Legislative Research’s annual report on acts that passed this year concerning insurance is out. Eighteen public acts are described covering a range of issues including autism, expedited external appeals, a program to review the social and financial impact of mandated benefits, insurer medical loss ratio disclosure, coverage of stepchildren, and prohibiting payments for “never events” as defined by Medicare. Among the four insurance bills vetoed by the Governor are an expansion of coverage benefits, post-claims underwriting limitations, and the Health Care Partnership bill. She also vetoed the SustiNet bill, but the legislature overruled that veto on Monday.
