Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Vision Care Plan Regulation Act. Provides that no vision care organization may issue a contract that requires an eye care provider to provide services or materials to an enrollee at a fee set by the vision care plan unless the services or materials are covered under the vision care plan. Provides that an eye care provider who chooses not to accept amounts set by a vision care plan for noncovered services or noncovered materials shall post a specified notice. Requires fees for covered services and materials to be reasonable and clearly listed on a fee schedule provided to the eye care provider. Prohibits a vision care organization from misrepresenting the benefits of a vision care plan as a means of selling coverage or communicating the benefit coverage to enrollees. Provides that the Act applies to any subcontractors used by a vision care organization to supply materials or services to an eye care provider or an enrollee under a vision care plan. Prohibits a vision care organization from restricting an eye care provider's freedom to choose suppliers, materials, or labs or from requiring an eye care provider to purchase materials from a source owned by the entity that issued the vision care plan. Provides that an eye care provider recommending an out-of-network supplier of vision care materials to an enrollee shall provide written notice thereof. Provides that the terms, fees, discounts, or reimbursement rates in a vision care plan may not be changed unless mutually agreed to in writing by the eye care provider and the vision care organization. Sets forth prohibited contract terms that may not be required by a vision care organization as a condition of contracting with a medical plan. Provides that a person or entity adversely affected by a violation of the Act by the vision care organization may seek injunctive relief and shall recover attorney's fees and costs from the vision care organization upon prevailing. Amends the Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act to provide that any person who violates the Vision Care Plan Regulation Act commits an unlawful practice.
