(215 ILCS 5/370h)
(from Ch. 73, par. 982h)
Before entering into any agreement
under this Article an insurer or administrator shall establish terms and
conditions that must be met by noninstitutional providers wishing to enter into
an agreement with the insurer or administrator. These terms and conditions may
not discriminate unreasonably against or among noninstitutional providers.
Neither difference in prices among noninstitutional providers produced by
a process of individual negotiation nor price differences among other
noninstitutional providers in different geographical areas or different
specialties constitutes unreasonable discrimination.
An insurer or administrator shall not refuse to contract with any
noninstitutional provider who meets the terms and conditions
established by the insurer or administrator.
