BIAGGI -- read twice and ordered printed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee on Insurance AN ACT to amend the insurance law, in relation to coverage for eating disorders THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM- BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. Subparagraph (B) of paragraph 5 of subsection (1) of section 3221 of the insurance law, as amended by chapter 502 of the laws of 2007, is amended to read as follows: (B) (i) Every insurer delivering a group or school blanket policy or issuing a group or school blanket policy for delivery, in this state, which provides coverage for inpatient hospital care or coverage for physician services, shall provide comparable coverage for adults and children with biologically based mental illness. Such group policies issued or delivered in this state shall also provide such comparable coverage for children with serious emotional disturbances. Such coverage shall be provided under the terms and conditions otherwise applicable under the policy, including network limitations or variations, exclu- sions, co-pays, coinsurance, deductibles or other specific cost sharing mechanisms. Provided further, where a policy provides both in-network and out-of-network benefits, the out-of-network benefits may have different coinsurance, co-pays, or deductibles, than the in-network benefits, regardless of whether the policy is written under one license or two licenses. (ii) For purposes of this paragraph, the term "biologically based mental illness" means a mental, nervous, or emotional condition that is caused by a biological disorder of the brain and results in a clinically significant, psychological syndrome or pattern that substantially limits the functioning of the person with the illness. Such biologically based mental illnesses are defined as schizophrenia/psychotic disorders, major depression, bipolar disorder, delusional disorders, panic disorder, EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets [ ] is old law to be omitted.
