Bill Would Require Accurate Health Provider Directories
Assembly member Wesley Chesbro (D-Santa Rosa) has introduced a bill (AB 2586) designed to help patients access more complete information about health care provider networks. The bill would require HMOs and health insurance companies to maintain accurate and up-to-date provider directories. It also would permit the Departments of Managed Healthcare and Insurance to review the adequacy of the networks. Eureka Times-Standard.
