INTRODUCED

HB 1940 -- Health Insurance

Co-Sponsors:  Clayton, Leake

This bill requires the Missouri Consolidated Health Care Plan
(MCHCP) to maintain adequate service networks in all areas of
the state.  To maintain adequate networks in an area, the MCHCP
Board is authorized to contract with health insurers in other
states and to seek waivers from regulations of the Department of
Insurance to contract with those insurers.  The board is also
required to seek a waiver from the department's regulations if a
contracting health plan so requests and the regulations are
hindering the provision of health care services.  An individual
who lives and resides outside of a health maintenance
organization's service area may enroll in the organization's
plan if the individual signs a statement agreeing to travel to
the service area for all health care services except emergency
services.
