17B:27-46.6. Reduction of benefits where no second opinion obtained
Where a second surgical opinion program is operative in connection with surgical coverage under a group insurance policy, and provides second and third surgical opinion services at no cost to the insured or patient, the group policy may, as an incentive to encourage utilization of the program when elective surgery is proposed, provide reduced benefits for the surgeon's charges for such elective surgery if it is performed without first obtaining a second or third opinion confirming that the proposed elective surgery was advisable.
