Arkansas Senate Bill 927
was approved by the state House and Senate yesterday. The legislation
would establish that a healthcare issuer has obtained reasonable
assurance if: (1) at least one qualified dental plan offers the minimum
essential pediatric oral health benefits that are available to the
purchaser of the health benefit plan; and (2) a qualified health plan
prominently discloses at the time of purchase on a form approved by the
DOI that the health plan does not provide pediatric oral benefits. If SB
927 is approved by the Governor, Arkansas would join at least two other
states (Maryland and Virginia) in having defined reasonable assurance
through legislation.
