One Pager Supporting HB 3351: Quality of Care Transparency
H.B. 3351 modernizes existing law to make it easier for health benefit plans to provide patients with information on medical provider quality. The bill ensures that the quality measures used are fair, and allows them to remain relevant over time through updates in the rule-making process. Quality measures utilized by health plans must:

- Be nationally recognized, based on expert provider consensus or leading clinical evidence-based scholarship; and
- Have a publicly transparent methodology, and be risk-adjusted, if based on clinical outcomes
