Delaware has enacted Insurance Fairness for Amputees legislation.
Insurance Fairness History
The Delaware General Assembly passed Insurance Fairness for Amputee legislation in 2011. House Bill 76 passed unanimously through both chambers of the legislature and was signed into law by Governor Jack Markell (D) on August 15th, 2011.
The Delaware General Assembly works on a two year cycle and in 2019 will be in the second year of their cycle. The 2019 Legislative Session convenes January 8th and will tentatively conclude June 30th. The Delaware General Assembly is able to prefile legislation for the upcoming session until December 13th, 2018. The General Assembly does not have introduction deadlines.
Currently, the Democratic Party controls both chambers of the State Legislature and the Office of the Governor.
In order to move forward with other legislative initiatives beyond Insurance Fairness, the Amputee Coalition needs the backing of the limb loss community. We are actively seeking advocates to support or advocacy efforts in Delaware. Connect with the Amputee Coalition or your insurance company through Amplify, your State Representation and the Delaware Department of Insurance to express your concern about issues affecting the limb loss community.
