State Clinical Trials Law

The ACA requires that most, non-grandfathered, group health plans provide coverage for the routine costs when participating in clinical trials. Some states have more consumer protections. Click here for more information about clinical trials.

This state does not mandate insurers or HMOs doing business in state to cover routine patient costs associated with clinical trials.
