No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
HB 3911 would require, rather than allow, the commissioner of insurance to examine an insurer to determine the quality and adequacy of a network used by a preferred provider benefit plan or an exclusive provider benefit plan offered by the insurer. An insurer would be subject to a qualifying examination of the insurer's preferred provider benefit plans and exclusive provider benefit plans, and subsequent quality of care and network adequacy examination by the commissioner at least once every three years and whenever the commissioner considers necessary.
Additionally, this bill would change the account to which the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI) is required to deposit an assessment collected with regard to such an examination from the TDI operating account to an account with the Texas Treasury Safekeeping Trust Company to be used to certain purposes.
Texas Action remains neutral on HB 3911 because it does not affect our liberty principles.
