17B:27-46.1cc Group health insurance policy, high deductible, coverage for preventive care.
8. No group health insurance policy providing hospital or medical expense benefits for groups with more than 50 persons, that qualifies as a high deductible health plan for which qualified medical expenses are paid using a health savings account established pursuant to section 223 of the federal Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (26 U.S.C. s.223), shall be delivered, issued, executed or renewed in this State, or approved for issuance or renewal in this State by the Commissioner of Banking and Insurance on or after the effective date of P.L.2005, c.248 (C.17:48E-35.27 et al.), unless the policy provides benefits to any named insured or other person covered thereunder for expenses incurred in connection with any medically necessary benefits provided in-network which represent preventive care as permitted by that federal law.
The benefits provided pursuant to this section shall be provided to the same extent as for any other medical condition under the policy, except that a deductible shall not be applied for benefits provided pursuant to this section. This section shall apply to all group health insurance policies in which the health insurer has reserved the right to change the premium.
