SB 233 - This act requires health carriers to reimburse licensed athletic trainers in the same manner as other providers are reimbursed. If a health benefit plan provides coverage for a particular type of health service for any particular medical condition that is within the scope of practice of a licensed athletic trainer, then a licensed athletic trainer shall not be denied reimbursement by a health carrier or health benefit plan for those covered services if the health carrier or plan would reimburse another health care provider for such services. Services provided by licensed athletic trainers may be subject to reasonable deductibles, copayment, and coinsurance amounts, fee or benefit limits, practice parameters, and utilization review consistent with applicable rules adopted by the department of insurance.
