Iowa has enacted Insurance Fairness for Amputees legislation.
Insurance Fairness History
The Iowa State Legislature passed Insurance Fairness for Amputee legislation in 2009. House File 311 was signed into law by Governor Chet Culver (D) on April 24th, 2009.
The Iowa State Legislature works on a two year cycle and in 2019 will be in the first year of their cycle. The 2019 Legislative Session convenes January 14th and will tentatively conclude May 3rd. The Iowa Legislature has set introduction deadlines for the 2019 Legislative Session. Both the House and Senate have a deadline of February 15th.
Currently, the Republican 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 Iowa. Connect with the Amputee Coalition or your insurance company through Amplify, your State Representation and the Iowa Division of Insurance to express your concern about issues affecting the limb loss community.
