CALENDARS: Texas Organizations Support HB 1073
On behalf of the undersigned organizations, we write to strongly support House bill 1073 by Representative Lacey Hull.
The legislation simply clarifies in statute that physicians and health plans are allowed to voluntarily enter into value-based or risk-based contracts with preferred provider organizations (PPOs) and exclusive provider organizations (EPOs). The bill also sets out certain contractual provisions that must be included in a contract, if a health plan and a physician or physician group enters into a risk-based contract.
