Health maintenance organizations; prohibited practices. Amends the “prohibited practices” provisions of the laws governing health maintenance organizations (HMOs). Under current law, HMOs are prohibited from discriminating unreasonably against any class of health care provider when contracting for provider services, subject to the HMO covering the services which the providers are licensed to render. The amendments (i) modify the reference to unreasonable discrimination by deleting “unreasonable” and (ii) add language referring to “treatment of conditions.” As amended by this bill, this statute would prohibit HMOs from discriminating against any class of provider licensed to provide the services or treat the conditions the HMO plan covers. The bill defines “conditions” to mean human illness, injury or physical disability.
