Bill Caption

Relating to coverage for treatment of craniofacial abnormalities under certain health benefit plans.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

This bill would require insurers to cover treatment of the primary conditions constituting craniofacial abnormalities and secondary conditions related to or arising from craniofacial abnormalities.

Vote Recommendation Notes

Texas Action recommends opposing this bill because it is a violation of our limited government and free markets principles. The bill would impose a new insurance mandate and would require insurers to cover certain procedures that they otherwise might not.
