26:2S-17 Recommendations for legislative action
17. The commissioner and the Commissioner of Banking and Insurance shall develop recommendations for legislative action to address the issue of regulating health care or managed care entities that seek to contract directly with employers or other purchasers on a risk-assuming basis. The recommendations shall identify the type of health care or managed care entities and the scope of activities of these entities that should be subject to regulation by the State. In preparing the recommendations, the commissioners shall consider the current State statutory and regulatory requirements for health maintenance organizations and insurance companies issuing health benefits plans in the State, as well as federal legislation and laws and court rulings to determine how these health care and managed care entities that assume risk should be regulated.

The commissioners shall report their recommendations to the Senate and General Assembly standing reference committees on health and insurance and to the Governor within one year of the effective date of this act.
