An Act to increase consumer transparency about insurance provider networks: would require a carrier to ensure the accuracy of the information concerning each provider listed in the carrier’s provider directories for each network plan and to review and update the entire provider directory for each network plan. In making the directory available electronically in a searchable format, the carrier shall ensure that the general public is able to view all of the current health care providers for a network plan through a clearly identifiable link or tab and without creating or accessing an account, entering a policy or contract number, providing other identifying information, or demonstrating coverage or an interest in obtaining coverage with the network plan.
