Latest bill text (Comm Sub) [PDF]


Physician referrals and reimbursement rates. Prohibits a referring physician from receiving compensation or an incentive from a health care entity or another physician, who is in the same health care network as the referring physician, for referring a patient to the health care entity or other physician. Provides that the rules adopted by the department of insurance regarding the all payer claims data base must include a requirement that health payers report physician reimbursement rates for each contract and specify a process for health payers to report the physician reimbursement rates. Requires the all payer claims data base to publish the physician reimbursement rates as a separate line item for each contract instead of in the aggregate.
