The Heart Bill provides very specific protections for both hypertension and heart disease. Heart disease is a general term, a very broad term that covers a number of different conditions, including coronary artery disease, cardiac arrhythmias but really any condition that adversely affects the heart is covered under the Heart Bill. Hypertension also is a broad category but it's interchangeably considered with high blood pressure and hypertension. These conditions are both covered.

There's also coverage for tuberculosis under the Heart Bill. Although we don't see many claims related to tuberculosis, there has been an uptick recently in tuberculosis claims with corrections officers because of their work environment.
