NU Online News Service, July 2, 6:44 p.m. – Missouri Gov. Bob Holden, a Democrat, is considering H.B. 1473, a bill that could help bring Missouri health plans into the Internet age.
The final version of the bill, which was introduced by Rep. Tom Green, D-St. Charles, Mo., lets managed care plans offer current enrollees the choice of getting plan documents and materials through the Web, rather than in printed form.
But “an enrollee may revoke such a waiver at any time by notifying the managed care entity by phone or in writing or annually,” according to the bill text.
Moreover, the text states that “any enrollee who does not execute such a waiver and prospective enrollees shall have documents and materials from the managed care entity provided in print form.”
