  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1. Section 3235-a of the insurance law, as added by section 3
of part C of chapter 1 of the laws  of  2002,  is  amended  to  read  as
follows:
  S  3235-a.  Payment  for early intervention services. (a) No policy of
accident and health insurance, including contracts  issued  pursuant  to
article  forty-three  of this chapter, shall exclude coverage for other-
wise covered services [solely on the basis that the services  constitute
early intervention program services] THAT ARE PROVIDED under title two-A
of article twenty-five of the public health law.
  (b)  Where  a  policy  of  accident  and health insurance, including a
contract  issued  pursuant  to  article  forty-three  of  this  chapter,
provides coverage for an early intervention program service, such cover-
age shall not be applied against any maximum annual or lifetime monetary
limits set forth in such policy or contract. Visit limitations and other
terms  and  conditions  of  the  policy  will continue to apply to early
intervention services. However, any visits used for  early  intervention
program  services shall not reduce the number of visits otherwise avail-
able under the policy or contract for such services.
  (c) Any right of subrogation to benefits which a municipality is enti-
tled in accordance with paragraph (d) of subdivision  three  of  section
twenty-five  hundred  fifty-nine of the public health law shall be valid
and enforceable to the extent benefits are available under any  accident
