Health care service plans: consolidation.
This bill would additionally require a health care service plan that intends to acquire or obtain control of an entity, as specified, to give notice to, and secure prior approval from, the director. Because a willful violation of this provision would be a crime, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program. The bill would also authorize the director to disapprove a transaction or agreement if it would substantially lessen competition in the health system or among a particular category of health care providers, and would require the director to provide information related to competition to the Attorney General. The bill would revise the director’s authority to conditionally approve a transaction or agreement, including authorizing the director to review information from federal agencies and other state agencies, including agencies in other states, that is relevant to any of the parties to the transaction, as specified.
