Each treasurer shall include in such statement (i) an itemized accounting of the receipts and expenditures relative to any testimonial affair held under the provisions of section 9-609 or any other fund-raising affair, which is referred to in subsection (b) of section 9-601a, and (ii) the date, location and a description of the affair, except that a treasurer shall not be required to include the name of any individual who has purchased items at a fund-raising affair or food at a town fair, county fair or similar mass gathering, if the cumulative value of items purchased by such individual does not exceed one hundred dollars, or the name of any individual who has donated food or beverages for a meeting. A treasurer shall not be required to report or retain any receipts or expenditures related to any de minimis donations described in subdivision (17) of subsection (b) of section 9-601a.

(2) Each contributor described in subparagraph (F), (G), (H) or (I) of subdivision (1) of this subsection shall, at the time the contributor makes such a contribution, provide the information that the treasurer is required to include under said subparagraph in the statement filed under subsection (a), (e) or (f) of this section. Notwithstanding any provision of subdivision (2) of section 9-7b, any contributor described in subparagraph (F) of subdivision (1) of this subsection who does not provide such information at the time the contributor makes such a contribution and any treasurer shall not be subject to the provisions of subdivision (2) of section 9-7b.

BUSINESS ON THE CALENDAR

FAVORABLE REPORT OF JOINT STANDING COMMITTEE

HOUSE BILL PASSED

The following bill was taken from the table, read the third time, the report of the committee indicated accepted and the bill passed.

INSURANCE AND REAL ESTATE. Substitute for H.B. No. 7124 (RAISED) (File No. 230) AN ACT CONCERNING MAXIMUM ALLOWABLE COST LISTS AND DISCLOSURES BY PHARMACY BENEFITS MANAGERS, LIMITING COST-SHARING FOR PRESCRIPTION DRUGS AND SHIELDING PHARMACISTS AND PHARMACIES FROM CERTAIN PENALTIES.

The bill was explained by Representative Lesser of the 100th who offered House Amendment Schedule "A" (LCO 7854) and moved its adoption.

The amendment was discussed by Representative Ziobron of the 34th.

On a voice vote the amendment was adopted.

The Speaker ruled the amendment was technical.

The following is House Amendment Schedule "A" (LCO 7854):

Strike everything after the enacting clause and substitute the following in lieu thereof:

"Section 1. Section 38a-509 of the general statutes is repealed and the following is substituted in lieu thereof (Effective January 1, 2018):

(a) Subject to the limitations set forth in subsection (b) of this section and except as provided in subsection (c) of this section, each individual health insurance policy providing coverage of the type specified in subdivisions (1), (2), (4), (11) and (12) of section 38a-469 delivered, issued for delivery, amended, renewed or continued in this state on or after [October 1, 2005] January 1, 2018, shall provide coverage for the medically necessary expenses of the diagnosis and treatment of infertility, including, but not limited to, ovulation induction, intrauterine insemination, in-vitro fertilization, uterine embryo lavage, embryo transfer, gamete intra-fallopian transfer, zygote intra-fallopian transfer and low tubal ovum transfer. For purposes of this section, "infertility" means the condition of [a presumably healthy] an individual who is unable to conceive or produce conception or sustain a successful pregnancy during a one-year period or such treatment is medically necessary.

(b) Such policy may:

(1) Limit such coverage to an individual until the date of such individual's fortieth birthday;

(2) Limit such coverage for ovulation induction to a lifetime maximum benefit of four cycles;

(3) Limit such coverage for intrauterine insemination to a lifetime maximum benefit of three cycles;

(4) Limit lifetime benefits to a maximum of two cycles, with not more than two embryo implantations per cycle, for in-vitro fertilization, gamete intra-fallopian transfer, zygote intra-fallopian transfer or low tubal ovum transfer, provided each such fertilization or transfer shall be credited toward such maximum as one cycle;

(5) Limit coverage for in-vitro fertilization, gamete intra-fallopian transfer, zygote intra-fallopian transfer and low tubal ovum transfer to those individuals who have been unable to conceive or produce conception or sustain a successful pregnancy through less expensive and medically viable infertility treatment or procedures covered under such policy. Nothing in this subdivision shall be construed to deny the coverage required by this section to any individual who foregoes a particular infertility treatment or procedure if the individual's physician determines that such treatment or procedure is likely to be unsuccessful;

(6) Require that covered infertility treatment or procedures be performed at facilities that conform to the standards and guidelines developed by the American Society of Reproductive Medicine or the Society of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility;

(7) Limit coverage to individuals who have maintained coverage under such policy for at least twelve months; and

(8) Require disclosure by the individual seeking such coverage to such individual's existing health insurance carrier of any previous infertility treatment or procedures for which such individual received coverage under a different health insurance policy. Such disclosure shall be made on a form and in the manner prescribed by the Insurance Commissioner.

(c) (1) Any insurance company, hospital service corporation, medical service corporation or health care center may issue to a religious employer an individual health insurance policy that excludes coverage for methods of diagnosis and treatment of infertility that are contrary to the religious employer's bona fide religious tenets.

(2) Upon the written request of an individual who states in writing that methods of diagnosis and treatment of infertility are contrary to such individual's religious or moral beliefs, any insurance company, hospital service corporation, medical service corporation or health care center may issue to or on behalf of the individual a policy or rider thereto that excludes coverage for such methods.

(d) Any health insurance policy issued pursuant to subsection (c) of this section shall provide written notice to each insured or prospective insured that methods of diagnosis and treatment of infertility are excluded from coverage pursuant to said subsection. Such notice shall appear, in not less than ten-point type, in the policy, application and sales brochure for such policy.

(e) As used in this section, "religious employer" means an employer that is a "qualified church-controlled organization", as defined in 26 USC 3121 or a church-affiliated organization.

Sec. 2. Section 38a-536 of the general statutes is repealed and the following is substituted in lieu thereof (Effective January 1, 2018):

(a) Subject to the limitations set forth in subsection (b) of this section and except as provided in subsection (c) of this section, each group health insurance policy providing coverage of the type specified in subdivisions (1), (2), (4), (11) and (12) of section 38a-469 delivered, issued for delivery, amended, renewed or continued in this state on or after [October 1, 2005] January 1, 2018, shall provide coverage for the medically necessary expenses of the diagnosis and treatment of infertility, including, but not limited to, ovulation induction, intrauterine insemination, in-vitro fertilization, uterine embryo lavage, embryo transfer, gamete intra-fallopian transfer, zygote intra-fallopian transfer and low tubal ovum transfer. For purposes of this section, "infertility" means the condition of [a presumably healthy] an individual who is unable to conceive or produce conception or sustain a successful pregnancy during a one-year period or such treatment is medically necessary.

(b) Such policy may:

(1) Limit such coverage to an individual until the date of such individual's fortieth birthday;

(2) Limit such coverage for ovulation induction to a lifetime maximum benefit of four cycles;

(3) Limit such coverage for intrauterine insemination to a lifetime maximum benefit of three cycles;

(4) Limit lifetime benefits to a maximum of two cycles, with not more than two embryo implantations per cycle, for in-vitro fertilization, gamete intra-fallopian transfer, zygote intra-fallopian transfer or low tubal ovum transfer, provided each such fertilization or transfer shall be credited toward such maximum as one cycle;

(5) Limit coverage for in-vitro fertilization, gamete intra-fallopian transfer, zygote intra-fallopian transfer and low tubal ovum transfer to those individuals who have been unable to conceive or produce conception or sustain a successful pregnancy through less expensive and medically viable infertility treatment or procedures covered under such policy. Nothing in this subdivision shall be construed to deny the coverage required by this section to any individual who foregoes a particular infertility treatment or procedure if the individual's physician determines that such treatment or procedure is likely to be unsuccessful;

(6) Require that covered infertility treatment or procedures be performed at facilities that conform to the standards and guidelines developed by the American Society of Reproductive Medicine or the Society of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility;

(7) Limit coverage to individuals who have maintained coverage under such policy for at least twelve months; and

(8) Require disclosure by the individual seeking such coverage to such individual's existing health insurance carrier of any previous infertility treatment or procedures for which such individual received coverage under a different health insurance policy. Such disclosure shall be made on a form and in the manner prescribed by the Insurance Commissioner.

(c) (1) Any insurance company, hospital service corporation, medical service corporation or health care center may issue to a religious employer a group health insurance policy that excludes coverage for methods of diagnosis and treatment of infertility that are contrary to the religious employer's bona fide religious tenets.

(2) Upon the written request of an individual who states in writing that methods of diagnosis and treatment of infertility are contrary to such individual's religious or moral beliefs, any insurance company, hospital service corporation, medical service corporation or health care center may issue to or on behalf of the individual a policy or rider thereto that excludes coverage for such methods.

(d) Any health insurance policy issued pursuant to subsection (c) of this section shall provide written notice to each insured or prospective insured that methods of diagnosis and treatment of infertility are excluded from coverage pursuant to said subsection. Such notice shall appear, in not less than ten-point type, in the policy, application and sales brochure for such policy.

(e) As used in this section, "religious employer" means an employer that is a "qualified church-controlled organization", as defined in 26 USC 3121 or a church-affiliated organization."
