Prevents a healthcare plan from contracting with providers to prohibit or discourage discussing “any health care services and health care providers, utilization review and quality assurance policies, terms and conditions of plans and plan policy with enrollees, prospective enrollees, providers, or the public.” A healthcare plan may not retaliate against a physician who advocates for medically appropriate health care services (i.e., protest against a decision to deny payment for a healthcare service).
