The Department is authorized to grant grace periods of up to 30 days upon request of a managed care organization for good cause due to financial or other difficulties, as determined by the Department. If a managed care organization fails to make a payment within 60 days after the due date the Department shall additionally impose a contractual sanction allowed against a Medicaid managed care organization and may terminate any such contract. The Department of Insurance shall take action against the certificate of authority of a non-Medicaid managed care organization that fails to pay an installment within 60 days after the due date.
