According to this:

I do want to correct the writing. The Affordable Care Act is silent on the subject and no federal regulations require that health plans covered under the act cover this. Last year, there was a ruling by the Departmental Appeals Board throwing out an exclusion of this for Medicare, but that falls under the laws and regulations covering Medicare. There are regulations in some states, however, that do require coverage in health plans issued within. It is likely based on this that the subject of the article receives coverage.
