Relating to denial of payment for preauthorized health care services.
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
HB 1273 would prohibit health benefit plans which have given prior authorization for health care services from denying or reducing payment for those services based on medical necessity or appropriateness of care unless the physician or care provider materially misrepresented the proposed health care services. Certain exemptions would apply.
