Attention New York Urologists –
A bill to mandate that insurance policies that cover prostate cancer screening must do so without cost-sharing is being considered by NY Governor Andrew Cuomo.
The sponsor’s justification states, “…in 2015 the state enacted provisions to ensure women have access to breast cancer screenings at no cost to them. These provisions are especially important in today’s health insurance market-place where more and more individuals are covered by high deductible policies. This legislation, similar to the breast cancer screening provisions enacted in 2015, will ensure men have access to prostate screenings at no cost to them.”
