26-34-134. Written agreement with providers; discrimination prohibited.
(a) Before entering into any written agreement with any provider for the furnishing of health care services to enrollees of a health maintenance organization the organization shall establish terms and conditions to be required of any provider interested in entering into the agreement. In no event shall any Wyoming provider willing to meet the established terms and conditions be denied the right to enter into any written agreement. The established terms and conditions shall not discriminate against any Wyoming provider solely on the basis of an inability to provide specified services within a health maintenance organization's entire service area. This subsection shall not be construed to require any health maintenance organization to involuntarily employ any person, sell any ownership interest to any person, enter into any partnership with any person or grant staff privileges to any person.
(b) No health maintenance organization shall discriminate in employment, contracting, participation, reimbursement or indemnification against a provider who is acting within the scope of his professional license under applicable state law, based solely on the academic degree of the provider.
