Summary as introduced:
Group health insurance policies; small employers.  Clarifies that group accident and sickness policies and contracts sold to a small employer are required to include coverage for mammograms, pap smears, PSA testing, and colorectal cancer screening. The measure reconciles an inconsistency in 2009 legislation that arose when it was amended at the Governor's request during the reconvened session to require such policies to include these four mandated procedures.
