Adverse action against legal reproductive health care
Insurance (ISC) CHAPTER 28, ARTICLE 34
§ 3436-a. 1. Adverse action against legal reproductive health care.
Every insurer which issues or renews medical malpractice insurance
covering a health care provider licensed to practice in this state shall
be prohibited from taking any adverse action against a health care
provider solely on the basis that the health care provider performs an
abortion or provides reproductive health care that is legal in the state
of New York on someone who is from out of the state. Such policy shall
include health care providers who legally prescribe abortion medication
to out-of-state patients by means of telehealth.

2. As used in this section, "adverse action" shall mean but not be
limited to: (a) refusing to renew or execute a contract or agreement
with a health care provider; (b) making a report or commenting to an
appropriate private or governmental entity regarding practices of such
provider which may violate abortion laws in other states; and (c)
increasing in any charge for, or a reduction or other adverse or
unfavorable change in the terms of coverage or amount for, any medical
malpractice insurance contract or agreement with a health care provider.
