Wash. Rev. Code § 246-25-045 – Washington

Status: Enacted
Link: http://app.leg.wa.gov/wac/default.aspx?cite=246-25-045

Prohibits the use of most favored nations clauses between a health care provider or facility and a certified health plan. A most favored nations clause is an agreement between a payer (such as an insurance company) and a provider that typically requires a provider to give the payer the lowest rate that it gave to any other comparable payer, which can be anticompetitive by encouraging oligopolistic pricing by large payer and increasing barriers for new entrants.
