Yesterday, NJ legislators passed Bill S-3202, sponsored by Senator Lagana and Senator Gopal, in a unanimous vote. The bill requires hospitals to provide breast cancer patients with information concerning reconstructive surgery. It also prohibits carriers from preventing the referral of a patient to an out-of-network surgeon who provides “the full scope of breast cancer reconstructive services necessary and appropriate to the patients’ treatment needs.” The bill was released from committee by a vote of 39-0.
