SB1322 takes effect September 1, 2013 allowing informal networks for durable medical equipment and home health care. The Act was previously amended in 2011 to allow informal networks for pharmaceutical services. Within 30 days after an informal network is established, it must report certain information to the Division including the name and contact information for the network and a list of the carriers and entities with whom it contracts. At least quarterly, notice must also be given to each contracted health care provider of all carriers given access by the network to the provider’s discounted rates. The notice can be provided in an electronic format or through an Internet website link if certain requirements are met.
