354.480. Rehabilitation, liquidation, or conservation, grounds, procedure — enrollee's priorities — claims, priority. — 1. Any rehabilitation, liquidation, or conservation of a health maintenance organization shall be deemed to be the rehabilitation, liquidation, or conservation of an insurance company and shall be conducted under the supervision of the director pursuant to the laws governing the rehabilitation, liquidation, or conservation of an insurance company. The director may apply for an order directing him to rehabilitate, liquidate, or conserve a health maintenance organization upon any one or more grounds set out in section* 354.355, or section 375.560, or when, in his opinion, the continued operation of the health maintenance organization would be hazardous either to the enrollees or to the people of this state. Enrollees shall have the same priority in the event of liquidation or rehabilitation granted the policyholders of an insurer.
2. A claim by a health care provider for any uncovered expenditures has priority over claims of other health care providers, provided such provider of services agrees not to assert such claim against any enrollee of the health maintenance organization.
