Senator Bryan Townsend has introduced a bill (SB100) that would extend the same access to treatment of substance abuse disorders to those on Medicaid as those who have their own private insurance. An earlier bill, SB41, passed, requiring private insurance companies to provide coverage of substance abuse disorders. This bill simply extends that same benefit to those on government-funded insurance.
AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 18 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO COVERAGE FOR SERIOUS MENTAL ILLNESS AND DRUG AND ALCOHOL DEPENDENCY.
