Prohibits most-favored nations (MFN) clauses in a contract between a health insurance carrier and a health care provider. A most-favored nations clause is a type of contractual provision that requires that the provider give the health carrier a rate equal to or lower than the most favorable between the provider and any other health insurance carrier. A most-favored nation clause in a healthcare contract can prevent smaller insurance carriers with less market power from competing on price.
