HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION NO. 105

(By Delegates Fleischauer, Brown, Caputo, Doyle, Hatfield, Morgan, Talbott and Wooton)




Requesting the Joint Committee on Government and Finance to study mandatory coverage by health insurers all expenses associated with pregnancy and childbirth.

Whereas, The cost for pregnancy care and child birth costs a significant amount of money; and
Whereas, Excluding pregnancy care and child birth from insurance coverage is discriminatory against the health concerns of women; and
Whereas, Noncoverage puts an unfair burden on families to pay for care that is needed to help grow a family; therefore, be it
Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:
That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance is hereby requested to study mandatory coverage by health insurers all expenses associated with pregnancy and childbirth; and, be it
Further Resolved, That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance report to the Regular Session of the Legislature, 2010, on its findings, conclusions and recommendations, together with drafts of any legislation necessary to effectuate its recommendations; and, be it
Further Resolved, That the Legislative expenses necessary to conduct this study, to prepare a report and to draft necessary legislation be paid from legislative appropriations to the Joint Committee on Government and Finance.
