NY Requires Ostomy Coverage

     New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo has signed into law a bill (S7893, A10140) that requires all commercial major medical insurances to cover the provision of ostomy supplies. The bill takes effect on January 1, 2015.             

 

     The United Ostomy Associations of America (UOAA) notes that New York and Connecticut are the only states to have such legislation in place. They also note that New York’s Child Health Plus plan does not cover ostomy supplies. Hoping to change that, the UOAA is looking for examples of problems or hardship resulting from non-coverage by this program. If anyone has a child with an ostomy who is covered by Child Health Plus, please contact the UOAA at (800) 826-0826 or visit www.ostomy.org.
