The House passed a bill unanimously last week and the Senate will pass it unanimously today (it’s on the Consent Calendar) that finally requires horrible insurance companies to cover a common place preventative examination (breast exams).
House Bill 60S requires that all insurance policies issued or renewed in Delaware include coverage of supplemental and diagnostic breast examinations on terms that are at least as favorable as the coverage of annual screening mammograms. The Act covers all group, blanket, and individual health insurance policies as well as the State employee healthcare plan and Medicaid.
