Genetic legislation may be clearly expressed in public health statutes. It may also be embedded in other regulations, administrative rules, or other less obvious statutes, e.g. labor law. Identifying and interpreting state genetics legislation is not necessarily straightforward. One example of genetic-related legislation in West Virginia is:
Chapter 33. Insurance. §33-15-2a. Definitions;
§33-15-2b. Guaranteed issue; limitation of coverage; election; denial of coverage; network plans.
