Coordination of health insurance benefits. Prohibits an insurer issuing individual or group accident and sickness insurance policies providing hospital, medical and surgical, or major medical coverage on an expense-incurred basis, a corporation providing individual or group accident and sickness subscription contracts, or a health maintenance organization providing a health care plan for health care services from delaying or refusing to make payment to a provider for covered expenses as a consequence of a failure or delay of the insured, subscriber, or member in responding to any coordination of benefits questionnaire or similar periodic inquiry from the insurer, corporation, or health maintenance organization regarding whether the insured, subscriber, or member or other family members enrolled with the insured, subscriber, or member are covered under another health insurance plan that may have primary responsibility for covered expenses. A similar prohibition is established with respect to the health insurance plan for state employees. Read the Bill »
