Dear Friends and Neighbors...


New legislation effective dates are typically January 1st, July 1st and October 1st throughout the calendar year.  As 2018 comes to an end, we prepare for a number of new laws to take effect starting January 1, 2019.  These new laws may have an impact on you, your business, or our community.  I have highlighted some noteworthy new laws below and encourage you to take a look at the full list.  Please contact me with any questions or clarifications regarding the implementation of these new laws.


AN ACT CONCERNING DUAL ARRESTS AND THE TRAINING REQUIRED OF LAW ENFORCEMENT PERSONNEL WITH RESPECT TO DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

This new law, PA 18-5, will reduce the number of dual arrests that occur in domestic violence cases and enhance domestic violence training offered to state and local law enforcement agencies. For a summary, click here.


AN ACT CONCERNING MAMMOGRAMS, BREST ULTRASOUNDS AND MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING OF BREASTS

This new law, PA-18-159, redefines mammogram, and eliminates co-payments and deductibles for certain breast ultrasounds.  For a summary, click here.


AN ACT AUTHORIZING PREGNANCY AS A QUALIFYING EVENT FOR SPECIAL ENROLLMENT PERIODS FOR CERTAIN INDIVIDUALS

This new law, PA-43, permits certain pregnant individuals to enroll in a health insurance policy or plan not later than thirty days after the individual's pregnancy has been certified by a licensed health care provider.  For a full summary, click here.


Happy New Year and thank you for your continued support.
