Provides that a Medicaid managed care organization may terminate or refuse to renew a contract with a LTAC hospital for a material breach of the contract, including, but not limited to, failure to grant reasonable and timely access to the Medicaid managed care organization's care coordinators and other providers, termination from the Medicare or Medicaid program, or revocation of license.
