This bill would require pharmacy providers that distribute blood clotting products used at home to treat and prevent symptoms associated with bleeding disorders, including all forms of hemophilia, to meet certain specified conditions
This bill would require health insurers to provide certain benefits in their policies for persons with hemophilia and other bleeding disorders
This bill would require physicians to request a medical screening for von Willebrand's disease and other bleeding disorders prior to advising a patient that an invasive uterine surgical procedure is the most appropriate treatment for menorrhagia
This bill would also authorize the Department of Public Health to adopt rules necessary to implement the provisions set forth in this act
To establish standards of care that provide for the health care needs of persons with hemophilia and other bleeding disorders; to require pharmacy providers that distribute blood clotting products to meet certain standards; to require health insurers to provide certain benefits; and to require physicians to request screening for certain conditions before performing surgical procedures.
