Testimony Supporting HB 3351: Quality of Care Transparency
TAHP supports HB 3351 and its aim to remove barriers that will allow health plans to easily share quality of care information with enrollees alongside price transparency.
In order to compare providers against nationally recognized quality standards developed by third parties, health plans must follow an onerous process that allows physicians to appeal their rankings and effectively delay or prevent quality transparency. Health plans must give every physician a right to appeal and, as part of the appeal, must allow in-person hearings. This process is burdensome and results in issuers not providing information at all. This bill would remove barriers and allow health plans to share quality of care data along with pricing information.
