   New Act                                                                     

        Creates the Notice to Health Carriers  Act.   Provides  that  the      
   Department  of  Professional  Regulation shall provide health carriers      
   with notice of adverse decisions against a physician or other licensed      
   healthcare  professional.  Authorizes  health   carriers   to   limit,      
   restrict, suspend, or terminate an agreement with physicians and other      
   licensed   health  care  professionals  under  certain  circumstances.      
   Provides immunity for health carriers  against  causes  of  action  by      
   physicians  or  other  licensed  health  care  professional based upon      
   actions  taken  in  response  to  the  notice  of  adverse   decision.      
   Effective immediately.                                                      
          FISCAL NOTE (Department of Professional Regulation)                  
          The Department expects HB 3052, in its current form, to have a       
          financial impact on the agency. The disciplinary information is      
          currently available on the agency's Internet web site at no          
          cost to the inquirer. The Department also continues to sell a        
          monthly subscription to mail or fax the monthly disciplinary         
          report at a cost of $48 per year. The maximum cost to DPR,           
          assuming that all health carriers requested a mailed copy            
          of the report provided at no charge from the agency, is              
          $62,640 per year (1,305 health carriers at $48). If all health       
          carriers instead accessed the information from the web site,         
          there would be no additional financial impact to the agency.         
          STATE MANDATES NOTE (Dept. of Commerce & Community Affairs)          
          In the opinion of the Department of Commerce and Community           
          Affairs (DCCA), HB 3052 does not create a State mandate under        
          the State Mandates Act.
