On and after January 1, 1990, every self-insured employee welfare benefit plan containing
hospital, medical, or surgical expense benefits or service benefits may provide coverage
for the treatment of alcoholism, chemical dependency, or nicotine use under such terms
and conditions as may be agreed upon between the self-insured welfare benefit plan
and the member, where the treatment may take place in facilities licensed to provide
alcoholism or chemical dependency services under Chapter 2 (commencing with Section 1250) of Division 2 of the Health and Safety Code.
Treatment for nicotine use may be subject to separate deductibles, copayments, and
overall cost limitations as determined by the plan.
