No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
The bill would prohibit health maintenance organizations and insurers operating preferred provider benefit plans from using extrapolation to complete audits of participating providers. The bill would exempt Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program. Based on information provided by the Texas Department of Insurance and Texas Medical Board, this analysis assumes the duties and responsibilities associated with implementing the provisions of the bill could be accomplished by utilizing existing resources.
