Treatment Insurance Law in MD
Maryland lawmakers approved a Bill in 2012 requiring that coverage for autism treatment be clarified by regulators under Maryland’s existing Habilitative Services Mandate. The regulation was finalized in March 2014.
The presentation is geared towards people covered by policies regulated under Maryland law, including people covered by Individual and Fully Funded Plans purchased in Maryland, Plans purchased on the Maryland Health Benefits Exchange, and Maryland State Employee Health Plans.
The new law does not apply to Employer Self-funded Plans (Self Insured Plans), Federal Employee Health Plans, Medicaid or Military Health Plans. However, relevant information will be offered to individuals covered by these plans.
