An Act amending the act of July 22, 1974 (P.L.589, No.205), known as the Unfair Insurance Practices Act, further providing for unfair methods of competition and unfair or deceptive acts or practices defined. This measure provides protection for patients who are already receiving a benefit within the policy year of their health insurance contract. It does not impact an insurer’s ability to alter covered benefits for insured people who are not already receiving a specific service, treatment or prescription drug. Finally, this legislation does not apply to a benefit removed from coverage because it has been deemed unsafe by the FDA or when production of a prescription drug has been discontinued.
