New Laws Effective January 1, 2020

January 6, 2020

I hope you had a peaceful holiday.

January 1st not only marked the beginning of a new year it also meant dozens of new laws and reforms went into effect for Connecticut residents.

Here are a couple of them:

  • Public Act No, 19-134 AN ACT EXPANDING REQUIRED HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE FOR PREEXISTING CONDITIONS. Expands the definition of preexisting conditions under state law to ensure patients with long term health issues continue to receive coverage regardless what happens at the federal level.
  • Public Act 19-159 AN ACT CONCERNING MENTAL HEALTH AND SUBSTANCE USE DISORDER BENEFITS Strengthens insurance coverage of mental health conditions and substance abuse treatment.

The new year can bring new opportunities and new challenges, but what won't change is a continued commitment by me to hear from you. With the 2020 legislative session set to begin in early February, I want to know the issues that matter most to you and your family.
