Beginning with the new year, workers can begin receiving up to 12 weeks of paid time to care for their own health, a newborn child or sick family member. Also, out-of-pocket costs for insulin will be limited to $25 a month.
The out-of-pocket expense for equipment and supplies including blood glucose test strips and insulin syringes will be limited to $100 a month. It affects certain insurers.
