Insurance Codes 10140 and 10146 to 10149 Prohibits life and disability income insurance companies from discrimination based on genetic characteristics, prohibits companies from requiring genetic tests and proscribes penalties for the unauthorized release of genetic test results. In Home Support Services and Care Civil Code Section 5617 Provides broad protection against unauthorized disclosure of genetic health results by health plans.
