Delaware Becomes 20th State to Pass Prosthetic Parity

Delaware is now the 20th state that has enacted laws requiring health insurers to provide coverage for prosthetic care equally to other medical services coverage.  Prosthetic parity laws reduce spending on physical rehabilitation and future complications associated with limb loss, and prosthetic devices enable people who have lost limbs to continue working and living productive lives.

Under a bill signed Monday by Gov. Jack Markell, insurance policies issued or renewed after Jan. 1 in Delaware and which provide major medical or other comprehensive coverage, must also provide reimbursement for prosthetic devices at least equal to federal reimbursements rates for health insurance for the aged and disabled similar to programs like Medicare.
