House committee substitute amends the 1st edition as follows.
Amends proposed GS 58-3-25(d), which prohibits an insurer from refusing to insure, limiting coverage to, or discriminating against an individual based solely and without any additional actuarial risks on the status of an individual as a living organ donor, including charging a different amount for the same coverage. Now defines living organ donor to mean a living individual who donates one or more of that individual's human organs, including bone marrow, to be medically transplanted into the body of another individual (was, to another individual to be transplanted using a medical procedure to the body of that other individual).
