An Act to increase access to urgent care centers
Any program of medical assistance or medical benefits for which the division is the primary payor shall cover urgent care services provided to a beneficiary by a licensed urgent care facility for medical conditions that are not emergency medical conditions. Such urgent care services may be provided without prior authorization from a beneficiary’s primary care provider. The division or its designee may require a beneficiary to contact the division or its designee or the primary care provider of the beneficiary within 48 hours of receiving such urgent care services, but notification already given to said division, designee, or primary care provider by the attending physician shall satisfy the requirements of this subsection.
