SB 747 - This act requires certain insurance companies to authorize or deny coverage for surgical procedures within certain time limits. These companies must reply to an enrollee's surgeon or primary care physician within forty-eight hours regarding the enrollee's eligibility for a surgery that has been pre-approved by the enrollee's physician. If the enrollee is deemed eligible for the surgical procedure, then the insurance company will be bound to its decision for thirty days following notification to the enrollee or to the enrollee's physician. Coverage of the surgical procedure will be subject to the same terms and conditions as applicable to other benefits.
