Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Managed Care Reform and Patient Rights Act. Provides that an individual's right to purchase any health care services with that individual's own funds may not be invalidated through a contractual provision or requirement between the insurer and a participating health care provider. Requires audiological services providers to provide to enrollees, upon request, a detailed and itemized statement with information outlining the costs of audiological devices, the plan payment amounts, and the amount of out-of-pocket costs to be paid by the enrollee for the various device options available to treat the enrollee's condition. Provides that no health care plan nor its subcontractors may, by contract, written policy, procedure, or otherwise, mandate or prohibit an enrollee from purchasing audiological equipment with a value over and above the plan benefit.
