AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Maine’s governor is throwing her support behind a proposed “COVID-19 Patient Bill of Rights” touted by top Democrats in the state.
The Maine Legislature Office of the Presiding Officers has said the proposal is designed to “require state-regulated health insurance companies to cover COVID-19 screening, testing and immunization at no cost to the patient.”
The proposal has the support of Senate President Troy Jackson and other prominent Maine Democrats.
Gov. Janet Mills, who is also a Democrat, called the proposal “important legislation” on Tuesday and said she supports it.
