Pending
AB 236 (Holden, D-Pasadena)
Follow
Passed the Assembly on Jan. 30. Pending a Senate policy committee referral.

AB 236 would require a health plan or insurer to annually audit and delete inaccurate listings from its provider directories, including deleting a provider from its directory if the plan or insurer has not financially compensated a provider in the prior year. It would also require the Department of Managed Health Care and the Department of Insurance to develop uniform formats for plans and insurers to use to request directory information from providers, and it would authorize the departments to establish methodology and processes to ensure accuracy of provider directories.
