New Hampshire Adopts Tomosynthesis Mandate

New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu signed SB 189 into law on June 8, 2018, requiring private insurance coverage of 3D breast tomosynthesis imaging.

The bill amends the state’s legal definition of “low-dose” to include 3-D tomosynthesis to mandate insurers to cover the service. The law will go into effect August 7. Mandatory digital breast tomosynthesis coverage laws have been passed in 15 states: Arkansas, Connecticut, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas, Vermont and Washington State.
