DRAFTER'S NOTE: This correction adds the disjunctive "or"
before the last two items in a series in Article 48A,
§ 182(d), for clarity.
Ch. 59 of the Acts of the Regular Session of the
General Assembly of 1985 failed to add the disjunctive
"or", leading to a possible ambiguity.
The correction was suggested by the State Attorney
General in his bill review letter of April 1, 1985.
Each group or individual medical or major medical contract
or certificate issued or delivered within the State by a
nonprofit health service plan and which provides
pregnancy-related benefits, may not exclude benefits for all
outpatient expenses arising from in vitro fertilization
procedures performed on the subscriber or the subscriber's
dependent spouse, provided that:
(6) The in vitro fertilization procedures are
performed at medical facilities that conform to the American
College of [Obstetric and Gynecology] OBSTETRICIANS AND
GYNECOLOGISTS guidelines for in vitro fertilization clinics or
to the American Fertility Society minimal standards for programs
of in vitro fertilization.
DRAFTER'S NOTE: This corrects a reference to the American
College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists in Article
48A, § 354DD(6).
Ch. 237 of the Acts of the Regular Session of the
General Assembly of 1985 incorrectly referred to the
"American College of Obstetric and Gynecology".
The error was noted by the Computer Division of the
Department of Legislative Reference.
