Public Hearing on Prosthetic Parity Initiative

March 8, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Come and Show Your Support on March 8th!
On Thursday, March 8th, the Connecticut Legislature will hold a public hearing regarding prosthetic parity in health insurance coverage. We are asking the Insurance and Real Estate Committee to introduce a bill during the 2018 session supporting fairness in health insurance coverage for prosthetics by removing exclusions and coinsurance requirements from health insurance plans so that all people with limb loss or limb difference can get prosthetic care that best suits their individual needs.
