Subparagraph (B) of paragraph 4 of subsection (b) of section 4328 of the insurance law, as amended by chapter 11 of the laws of 2016, is amended to read as follows: (B) In addition to the enrollment periods required in subparagraph (A) of this paragraph, an individual enrollee direct payment contract offered pursuant to this section shall allow for the enrollment of a pregnant individual. Such individual may enroll at any time after a health care professional licensed pursuant to title eight of the educa- tion law and acting within the scope of his or her practice certifies that the individual is pregnant. SUCH HEALTH INSURANCE POLICY OR CONTRACT SHALL NOT IMPOSE A FEE OR OTHER PENALTY FOR SPECIAL ENROLLMENT OF THE PREGNANT INDIVIDUAL. Upon enrollment, coverage shall be effec- tive as of the first day of the month in which the health care profes- sional certifies that the individual is pregnant, unless the individual elects to have coverage effective on the first day of the month follow- ing the date that the individual received certification of the pregnan- cy. § 2. This act shall take effect on the first of January next succeed- ing the date on which it shall have become a law and shall apply to all policies or contracts issued, renewed, modified, altered or amended on or after such effective date.
