If enacted, House Bill 2965 would require PEIA, Medicaid and other health insurance providers to offer insurance coverage for the treatment of pediatric autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorders associated with streptococcal infections and pediatric acute onset neuropsychiatric syndrome if certain conditions are met. House Bill 2965 will have no fiscal impact on the Offices of the Insurance Commissioner. PEIA and DHHR/ Medicaid should be consulted regarding the fiscal impact to those programs. It should be noted that HB 2965 does not contain language limiting the insurance benefits provided under the bill to the essential health benefits (EHB) specified under section 130(b) of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). PPACA 1311 (d)(3) provides that a state must defray the cost by direct payment to enrollees or to the Plan of any state mandated benefit in excess of the EHB. To the extent that the health insurance benefits required by HB 2965 do not fall within the EHB, a potential cost to the State exists.”
