Additional Information on Proposed State Essential Health Benefits Benchmark Plans
A list of each state’s required benefits has also been compiled to help states and issuers determine the state-required benefits in excess of EHB. We consider state-required benefits (or mandates) to include only specific care, treatment, or services that a health plan must cover. We do not consider provider mandates, which require a health plan to reimburse specific health care professionals who render a covered service within their scope of practice, to be state-required benefits for purposes of EHB coverage. Similarly, we do not consider state-required benefits to include dependent mandates, which require a health plan to define dependents in a specific manner or to cover dependents under certain circumstances (e.g., newborn coverage, adopted children, domestic partners, and disabled children). Finally, we do not consider state anti-discrimination requirements, and state requirements relating to service delivery method (e.g., telemedicine) to be state-required benefits.
