North Carolina House Bill 535 Health Insurance Coverage/Lymphedema

  • North Carolina House Bill 535 Health Insurance Coverage/Lymphedema was filed in the House on March 11, 2009.  It has now passed the 2nd & 3rd reading in the North Carolina Senate, and was ratified by both houses on July 9, 2009.  House Bill 535 supports insurance reimbursement for evaluation & treatment of lymphedema, and the cost of custom-fitted compression garments (not over-the-counter stockings or compression garments).  The bill has been presented to North Carolina Governor Bev Perdue on July 10, 2009.  Let's continue to support this important legislation, and look forward hopefully to the announcement of it becoming state law!
