(b) Using the guidelines and standards established under section 62K.10, subdivision 5, paragraph (b), the commissioner shall review each waiver request and shall approve a waiver only if:

 

(1) the standards for approval established by the commissioner are satisfied; and

(c) A waiver shall automatically expire after four years and cannot be renewed.  Upon or prior to expiration of a waiver, a health maintenance organization unable to meet the requirements in subdivision 1 or 2 must submit a new waiver application under paragraph (a) and must also submit evidence of steps the organization took to address the network inadequacy.  When the commissioner reviews a waiver application for a network adequacy requirement which has been waived for the organization for the most recent four-year period, the commissioner shall also examine the steps the organization took during that four-year period to address network inadequacy, and shall only approve a subsequent waiver application if it satisfies the requirements in paragraph (b), demonstrates that the organization took the steps it proposed to address network inadequacy, and explains why the organization continues to be unable to satisfy the requirements in subdivision 1 or 2.

 

(d) Application fees collected under this subdivision shall be deposited in the state government special revenue fund in the state treasury.

 

Sec. 2.  Minnesota Statutes 2018, section 62D.124, is amended by adding a subdivision to read:

Subd. 7.  Provider network notifications.  A health maintenance organization must provide on the organization's website the provider network for each product offered by the organization, and must update the organization's website at least once a month with any changes to the organization's provider network, including provider changes from in-network status to out-of-network status.  A health maintenance organization must also provide on the organization's website, for each product offered by the organization, a list of the current waivers of the requirements in subdivision 1 or 2, in a format that is easily accessed and searchable by enrollees and prospective enrollees.

Journal of the House - 21st Day - Wednesday, March 13, 2019 - Top of Page 1017

into or implemented in a manner which violates sections 62D.01 to 62D.30 shall be considered a separate violation.  The commissioner shall impose an administrative penalty of at least $.......per day that a provider network in a county violates section 62D.124, subdivision 1 or 2, and may take other enforcement action authorized in law but shall not also impose an administrative penalty under section 62K.105, subdivision 3, for a violation.  In determining the level of an administrative penalty, the commissioner shall consider the following factors:

 

(1) the number of enrollees affected by the violation;

 

(2) the effect of the violation on enrollees' health and access to health services;

 

(3) if only one enrollee is affected, the effect of the violation on that enrollee's health;

 

(4) whether the violation is an isolated incident or part of a pattern of violations; and

 

(5) the economic benefits derived by the health maintenance organization or a participating provider by virtue of the violation.

 

Reasonable notice in writing to the health maintenance organization shall be given of the intent to levy the penalty and the reasons therefor, and the health maintenance organization may have 15 days within which to file a written request for an administrative hearing and review of the commissioner of health's determination.  Such administrative hearing shall be subject to judicial review pursuant to chapter 14.  If an administrative penalty is levied, the commissioner must divide 50 percent of the amount among any enrollees affected by the violation, unless the commissioner certifies in writing that the division and distribution to enrollees would be too administratively complex or that the number of enrollees affected by the penalty would result in a distribution of less than $50 per enrollee.

 

Sec. 5.  Minnesota Statutes 2018, section 62K.075, is amended to read:

 

62K.075 PROVIDER NETWORK NOTIFICATIONS.

(b) Upon notification from an enrollee, a health carrier must reprocess any claim for services provided by a provider whose status has changed from in-network to out-of-network as an in-network claim if the service was provided after the network change went into effect but before the change was posted as required under paragraph (a) unless the health carrier notified the enrollee of the network change prior to the service being provided.  This paragraph does not apply if the health carrier is able to verify that the health carrier's website displayed the correct provider network status on the health carrier's website at the time the service was provided.

 

(c) The limitations of section 62Q.56, subdivision 2a, shall apply to payments required by paragraph (b).

 

Sec. 6.  Minnesota Statutes 2018, section 62K.10, subdivision 5, is amended to read:

(2) include specific information as to the steps that were and will be taken to address the network inadequacy, and for steps that will be taken prospectively to address network inadequacy, the time frame within which those steps will be taken.

 

(b) The commissioner shall establish guidelines for evaluating waiver applications, standards governing approval or denial of a waiver application, and standards for steps that health carriers or preferred provider organizations must take to address the network inadequacy and allow the health carrier or preferred provider organization to meet network adequacy requirements within a reasonable time period.  The commissioner shall review each waiver application using these guidelines and standards and shall approve a waiver application only if:

 

(1) the standards for approval established by the commissioner are satisfied; and

 

(2) the steps that were and will be taken to address the network inadequacy and the time frame for taking these steps satisfy the standards established by the commissioner.

 

(c) The waiver shall automatically expire after four years and cannot be renewed.  If a renewal of the waiver is sought, the commissioner of health shall take into consideration steps that have been taken to address network adequacy.  Upon or prior to expiration of a waiver, a health carrier or preferred provider organization unable to meet the requirements in subdivision 2 or 3 must submit a new waiver application under paragraph (a) and must also submit evidence of steps the carrier or organization took to address the network inadequacy.  When the commissioner reviews a waiver application for a network adequacy requirement which has been waived for the carrier or organization for the most recent four-year period, the commissioner shall also examine the steps the carrier or organization took during that four-year period to address network inadequacy, and shall only approve a subsequent waiver application that satisfies the requirements in paragraph (b), demonstrates that the carrier or organization took the steps it proposed to address network inadequacy, and explains why the carrier or organization continues to be unable to satisfy the requirements in subdivision 2 or 3.

 

(d) Application fees collected under this subdivision shall be deposited in the state government special revenue fund in the state treasury.

 

Sec. 7.  [62K.105] NETWORK ADEQUACY COMPLAINTS AND INVESTIGATIONS.

Subd. 2.  Commissioner investigations of provider networks.  The commissioner shall establish a program to examine health carrier and preferred provider organization compliance with the requirements in section 62K.10, subdivisions 2, 3, and 4.  Under this program, department employees or contractors shall seek to make appointments with a range of provider types in a carrier's or organization's designated provider network to determine whether covered services are available to enrollees without unreasonable delay, and shall examine whether the carrier's or organization's network complies with the maximum distance or travel time requirements for specific provider types.  The commissioner shall develop a schedule to ensure that all health carriers and preferred provider organizations are periodically examined under this program, and shall also use this program to investigate enrollee complaints filed under subdivision 1.
