Introduced by Sen. Patrick Colbeck (R) on September 9, 2014 To establish that fixed-fee medical retainer agreements between a physician and a potential patient covering routine health care services are not considered “insurance” subject to the extensive regulatory regime imposed on conventional health insurance policies. This could presumably apply to ”direct primary care” agreements, “concierge medicine” and similar innovations. Official Text and Analysis.
Referred to the Senate Insurance Committee on September 9, 2014
