Pending Under Review

AB 1451 (Jackson, D-Perris) Details

Introduced on Feb. 17. Referred to Assembly Health Committee.

AB 1451 would require a health care service plan contract or health insurance policy to provide coverage for treatment of a behavioral health crisis that is identified during an appointment at a contracted facility where the patient is receiving treatment for a medical condition. The bill would require the treatment to be provided without preauthorization and would authorize the provider or facility to use same-day billing to obtain reimbursement for both the medical and behavioral health services provided.
