SB 687 - This act prohibits health carriers from imposing greater copayments, coinsurance, or office visit deductibles to insureds for covered services provided by a licensed physical therapist than those charged for the same covered services provided by licensed primary care physicians or osteopaths. Under the act, health carriers must clearly state the availability of physical therapy coverage under its plan and all related limitations, conditions, and exclusions.

This act is identical to HB 1134 (2012).
