Implementer § 197 — Reproductive Health Care Services Definition

Home Implementer § 197 — Reproductive Health Care Services Definition

The bill expands the definition of “reproductive health care services” in HB 5414, as amended by House “A” and passed in concurrence by both chambers, to include medical care relating to gender dysphoria treatments. In doing so, it extends to gender dysphoria treatments that bill’s protections for reproductive health care services, including (1) a cause of action for persons against whom there is an out-of-state judgement based on them and (2) limitations on the assistance officers of Connecticut courts, public agencies, and certain health care providers may provide in out-of-state judicial actions related to them.

HB 5414, as amended, currently defines “reproductive health care services” to include all medical, surgical, counseling, or referral services related to the human reproductive system, such as pregnancy, contraception, or pregnancy termination.
