(Jefferson City) (AP) – A proposal to study the effects of mandatory health insurance coverage for eating disorders is awaiting the signature of Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon.

Lawmakers approved the legislation last week before adjourning their annual session.

The bill would require the Joint Committee on Legislative Research to do an actuarial analysis of the costs associated with the potential coverage mandate. The analysis would also cover a possible mandate for orally-administered cancer medications.

The report would need to be completed by Dec. 31 and sent to legislative leaders.

The legislation was sponsored by Republican Sen. David Pearce, of Warrensburg.
