A bill introduced Monday in the House of Representatives would require private health insurance to fully cover forensic examinations for victims of sexual assault. The legislation was passed after a study published last week in the New England Journal of Medicine found that nearly 18,000 of 113,000 sexual assault-related emergency visits in 2019 resulted in out-of-pocket expenses for survivors. The average cost was $3,551 per person. (Bendix, September 20)
