State Laws

For individuals diagnosed with a serious medical condition and their caregivers, understanding the laws in your state is important because sometimes state laws provide more protection than federal laws. Federal laws are created by the federal government in Washington, D.C., and apply to all people across all states and territories. State laws, outlined here, are created by your state government and only apply in your specific state. 

Browse state laws affect health care, including topics like health insurance, employment, disability insurance, accessing medical records, estate planning and medical decision-making, and more.

Our free resources are applicable to anyone with a serious medical condition, or the general public.
