MANAGED CARE REFORM
41-3902. Intent and purpose. As a guide to the interpretation and application of this chapter, the public policy of this state is declared as follows: The legislature wishes to eliminate legal barriers to the establishment of managed care plans which provide readily available, accessible and quality health care to their members and to encourage their development as an optional method of health care delivery. The state of Idaho must have reasonable assurance that organizations offering managed care plans within this state are financially and administratively sound and responsive to the needs of their members, and that such organizations are, in fact, able to deliver the benefits which they offer.
