Georgia lawmakers may revisit state healthcare insurance mandates
Atlanta Journal Constitution, October 23, 2009
The door may be open to revisit state-mandated insurance coverage for certain medical tests and procedures when Georgia lawmakers reconvene in January. Georgia law provides that many health insurance policies cover certain tests and procedures, including mammograms, pap smears, colorectal screening, ovarian cancer screening, and prostate cancer screenings. But lawmakers are considering introducing legislation that would allow employers to offer workers the option of health policies that don't include all the now-mandated procedures and tests.
