Additions and Enhancements

Update to 1/1/2014 - The APIS information appearing on this Web site has been updated to include legislative and regulatory changes that took effect on or before 1/1/2014. Vehicular Insurance Exclusion has been discontinued and is not included in the update.

New Policy Topics - Two new policy topics relating to Alcohol Beverages Pricing were added to the APIS Policy Topics section:

The Preemption Doctrine - The About Alcohol Policy page was revised to include an explanation of Federal and State preemption.

Health Insurance Parity - The comparison tables for Health Insurance Parity for Alcohol-Related Treatment were simplified by removal of the Small Business Exemption column. Archival coding for this variable for the period 1/1/2003 through 12/31/2013 can be found here.
