Short description: 
MEDCAID-INVESTIGATE MANAGD CAR                                             

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Medicaid Article of  the  Public  Aid  Code.   In  the      
   Section  concerning  the integrated health care program, provides that      
   as a condition of participation in the program, a managed health  care      
   entity must authorize an investigation to determine whether the entity      
   or an owner has been sanctioned or charged with a crime.  Provides for      
   confidentiality  of  information  received,  and  makes  violation  of      
   confidentiality  a  Class  A  misdemeanor.  Prohibits a managed health      
   care entity from participating in the program if its license has  been      
   revoked, suspended, or not renewed.  Effective immediately.                 
          FISCAL NOTE (Dpt. Public Aid)                                        
          One time costs total approximately $9,750; monthly costs total       
          approximately $20,376 plus overhead expenses.                        
          STATE MANDATES FISCAL NOTE                                           
          In the opinion of DCCA, HB784 fails to meet the definition of a      
          State mandate.                                                       
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
        Makes changes regarding the scope of the investigation of managed      
   health  care entities and in the criteria for disqualifying  a managed      
   health care  entity from participation in the integrated  health  care
