Tred R. Eyerly - Insurance Law Hawaii

The 2022 Hawaii legislative session has adjourned with two insurance-related bills passed and and now pending before the governor. The new legislation amends existing statutes that are not within the everyday parlance of coverage lawyers. The bills are as follows:

HB1980 - The bill modifies Haw. Rev. Stat. 346-59.1 regarding coverage for telehealth. Medicaid, health insurers, mutual benefit societies and health maintenance organizations are permitted, but not required, to cover telephonic behavioral health services under certain circumstances. The legislation further clarifies that telephonic services do not constitute telehealth.
