Pennsylvania Health Insurance Premiums Likely to Further Rise

Tuesday, January 16, 2024

This bill, the "Lyme Disease and Related Tick-Borne Illness Diagnosis and Treatment Act" requires all health insurance policies offered in the state to provide coverage for all diagnostic testing and prescribed treatment of Lyme disease. The bill also requires the state Department of Health to distribute culturally and linguistic appropriate literature about Lyme disease to healthcare providers and the general public at no cost. Oppose is the Limited Government Position as each and every health insurance mandate or price control on co-payments prevents an individuals ability to select a plan with just basic or customized coverages to fit their specific needs. As a result, health insurers are forced to only offer costly plans loaded with coverages that most individuals do not need. This can result in lower-income or younger individuals choosing to purchase no insurance plan at all due to the high cost.

Passed by Four-Fifths Majority - 43 to 7 (2022)
