An Act amending Title 40 (Insurance) of the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes, in special provisions relating to particular classes of insurers, providing for nondiscrimination by payers in health care benefit plans. This legislation will provide that private practitioners and facilities remain “in network” if they are qualified and willing to accept the terms and conditions of the contract. Pennsylvania currently does not have “Any Willing Provider” (AWP) legislation despite multiple attempts. Under an AWP law, a health insurer may not exclude any provider in its geographic area who is willing to meet its conditions of participation.
