INTRODUCED

HB 1607 -- Open Referrals to Obstetricians and Gynecologists

Co-Sponsors:  Barry, Murray, Kelly (27)

This bill prohibits health carriers from requiring a covered
person to obtain a referral from a primary care physician before
seeking the services of a participating obstetrician or
gynecologist.  Services are limited to those defined by the
published recommendations of the accreditation council for
graduate medical education for training an obstetrician or
gynecologist.  Health carriers may not charge additional fees
for a covered person's direct access to a participating
obstetrician or gynecologist unless those fees are charged for
other types of health care services within the carrier's network
of providers.
