Chapter 282, P.L. 2013

Date Approved: January 17, 2014

Effective Date: January 17, 2014

Description:

This law makes various changes to the Employees’ Retirement System of Jersey City (ERS), a pension plan administered solely by Jersey City. 

Prior to this law’s enactment, persons employed by Jersey City under the age of 40 were required to become members of the ERS as a condition of employment if they were otherwise qualified for enrollment. Persons restricted from enrollment in the ERS because of age were enrolled in the State-administered Public Employees’ Retirement System (PERS).  The amendments in Section 2 of this new law provide that persons employed by Jersey City under age 40 will continue membership in the PERS if they were PERS members at the time they were employed by Jersey City.

Chapter 196, P.L. 2013

Date Approved: January 17, 2014

Effective Date: May 1, 2014. Sections 1 through 9 of this act shall apply to all contracts and policies that are delivered, issued, executed, or renewed or approved for issuance or renewal in this State on or after the effective date.

Description:

This law requires the SHBP/SEHBP and other health insurers to cover breast evaluations and other additional medically necessary testing under certain circumstances and requires certain mammogram reports to contain information on breast density.

Pursuant to the provisions of this law, health insurers are to provide health benefits coverage for an ultrasound evaluation, a magnetic resonance imaging scan, a three-dimensional mammography, or other additional testing of an entire breast or breasts, after a baseline mammogram examination, if the mammogram demonstrates extremely dense breast tissue, if the mammogram is abnormal within any degree of breast density including not dense, moderately dense, heterogeneously dense, or extremely dense breast tissue, or if the patient has additional risk factors for breast cancer.  The law provides that the additional risk factors include, but are not limited to, family history of breast cancer, prior personal history of breast cancer, positive genetic testing, extremely dense breast tissue based on the Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System, or other indications as determined by the patient’s health care provider. 

Under the law, the additional coverage required to be provided by health insurers may be subject to utilization review, including periodic review, by the health insurer of the medical necessity of the additional breast screening and diagnostic testing.
             

In addition, the law requires that each mammography report provided to a patient include information about breast density, based on the Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System established by the American College of Radiology.
