Current Bill Summary

SB 229 - This act prohibits health carriers from denying reimbursement for a health care service on the basis that the service was provided by a licensed athletic trainer.

The reimbursement may be subject to reasonable out-of-pocket costs, fee or benefit limits, or utilization reviews consistent with applicable rules adopted by the Department of Insurance, Financial Institutions and Professional Registrations, provided that the amounts, limits, and reviews do not function to direct treatment in a way that arbitrarily discriminates against athletic trainer care, and are no more restrictive than those applicable to other health care providers for comparable health care services.
