Creating uniformity in health care insurance billing is the focus of a new law.

Sponsored by Rep. Paul Thissen (DFL-Mpls) and Sen. Kevin Dahle (DFL-Northfield), the law requires the health and human services commissioners along with the Minnesota Administrative Uniformity Committee to study and recommend ways to simplify health care billing transactions through electronic interchanges.

The study must include recommendations on establishing a single, standardized system for all group purchasers for transactions and notifications; recommendations on technology relationships regarding e-prescribing laws; ensuring any use of technologies among providers and purchasers is consistent with national standards; analysis of the readiness of providers and purchasers to implement technologies; and prioritizing the implementation of specific technologies.

The law is effective Aug. 1, 2009.
