Senate Bill 18 (or BR 96 2010) was prefiled on November 4, 2009 and introduced on January 5, 2010 by Senators Julie Denton and Johnny Ray Turner to the 2010 General Assembly.

It is an act relating to health care services provided in clinical trials for the treatment of cancer.

BR 96 proposes to create a new section of Subtitle 17A of KRS Chapter 304 to prohibit a health benefit plan from excluding coverage for routine patient healthcare costs that are incurred in the course of a cancer clinical trial if the health benefit plan would provide coverage for the routine patient healthcare cost had it not been incurred in a cancer clinical trial; provide that nothing in this section requires a policy to offer, nor prohibit a policy from offering, cancer clinical trial services by a participating provider; provide that nothing in this section requires services that are performed in a cancer clinical trial by a non-participating provider of a policy to be reimbursed at the same rate as those performed by a participating provider of the policy.[1]
