NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A9718B
 
SPONSOR: Rosenthal L
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the insurance law, in relation to prohibiting medical malpractice insurance companies from taking any adverse action against a reproductive health care provider who provides legal reproductive health care   PURPOSE: Prohibits medical malpractice insurance companies from taking any adverse action against a reproductive health care provider who provides legal reproductive health care.   SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section one amends section 5504 of the insurance law adding a new section 3436-a. Section two establishes the effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: Restrictive abortion bans have been introduced in states throughout the country, making it extremely difficult for women to access safe repro- ductive healthcare without seeking it outside of their home state. According to a 2021 study by Planned Parenthood, the number of patients with a Texas zip code who sought care from Planned Parenthood Centers in other states has been increasing by an average of 6% per month. With the proliferation of telehealth services, prescription medication and other reproductive healthcare can be provided to patients virtually, making it easier for providers to care for patients across state borders. This legislation will prevent insurers from taking action against a healthcare provider in New York State for performing reproductive services that are illegal elsewhere, protecting doctors and ensuring that women can safely access abortion and related reproductive health care services in New York.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall be effective immediately.

        AN ACT to amend the insurance law, in relation  to  prohibiting  medical
          malpractice insurance companies from taking any adverse action against
          a  reproductive  health  care provider who provides legal reproductive
          health care
 
          The People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and  Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:
 
     1    Section 1. The insurance law is amended by adding a new section 3436-a
     2  to read as follows:
     3    §  3436-a.  1.  Adverse action against legal reproductive health care.
     4  Every insurer which  issues  or  renews  medical  malpractice  insurance
     5  covering a health care provider licensed to practice in this state shall
     6  be  prohibited  from  taking  any  adverse  action against a health care
     7  provider solely on the basis that the health care provider  performs  an
     8  abortion or provides reproductive health care that is legal in the state
     9  of  New  York on someone who is from out of the state. Such policy shall
    10  include health care providers who legally prescribe abortion  medication
    11  to out-of-state patients by means of telehealth.
    12    2.  As  used  in  this section, "adverse action" shall mean but not be
    13  limited to: (a) refusing to renew or execute  a  contract  or  agreement
    14  with  a  health  care  provider; (b) making a report or commenting to an
    15  appropriate private or governmental entity regarding practices  of  such
    16  provider  which  may  violate  abortion  laws  in  other states; and (c)
    17  increasing in any charge for, or a reduction or other adverse  or  unfa-
    18  vorable change in the terms of coverage or amount for, any medical malp-
    19  ractice insurance contract or agreement with a health care provider.
    20    § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
 
         EXPLANATION--Matter in italics (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                              [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                                   LBD15073-07-2
