Managed Care Laws in Connecticut
The Connecticut General Assembly (our State Senators and Representatives) continues to work on legislation that helps those enrolled in managed care health plans to receive comprehensive insurance coverage.
Connecticut citizens insured by Connecticut health plans are protected by laws requiring insurers to provide coverage in the following areas:
Cervical cancer screening (Pap smear)
Colorectal cancer screening
Diabetic supplies & education
Drug abuse treatment
Formula for PKU
Hearing aids (limited coverage)
Home health care
Mental health, general
Mental health parity (see also federal Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act)
Minimum mastectomy stays
Minimum maternity stays
Off-label drug use
Orthotics or prosthetics
Prostate cancer screening
This list will be updated as enacted legislation increases consumer protections.
