LD 224 – Maine

Status: Enacted
Year Introduced: 2024
Link: https://legislature.maine.gov/legis/bills/display_ps.asp?LD=224&snum=131

This bill, enacted by the State of Maine, prevents healthcare insurers from denying or reducing reimbursements to doctors, hospitals, or outpatient clinical practices due to their non-participation in a Maintenance of Certification Program. The Maintenance of Certification Program involves further participation beyond the ongoing medical education requirements currently established by the Board of Licensure in Medicine or Board of Osteopathic Licensure, or original board certifications from a national or regional medical specialty board. The bill, therefore, disallows any form of discrimination against these entities by insurers based on their maintenance of certification status. The bill will come into effect on January 1, 2024, and will be applicable until April 1, 2029.
