"House backs coverage requirement for Lyme disease treatment"
A few highlights:
"Insurers in Massachusetts would receive a new mandate to cover long-term antibiotic therapy for the treatment of Lyme disease under an amendment the House adopted in its $39.5 billion budget bill."
"Self-insured companies are regulated federally and not subject to state mandates.“Legislators think they’re mandating coverage for everybody and they’re not,” National Federation of Independent Business Massachusetts State Director Bill Vernon told the News Service. A former House Republican, Vernon said, “I understand they’re hard to vote against,” but emphasized that large corporations that can self-insure are not subject to state mandates."
So, those in Massachusetts should at least have a fighting chance at insurance coverage!
