Summary

Facilities providing imaging services; shared savings; exemption from certificate of public need. Provides that a certificate of public need shall not be required for the addition of certain imaging services or for the addition by an existing facility of certain new imaging equipment, provided that the medical care facility complies with quality of care standards and charity care requirements established by the Board of Health. The measure also requires health carriers to establish a comparable imaging service incentive program, subject to approval by the Commissioner of Insurance, under which incentives are offered to a covered person who elects to receive a covered imaging service from a lower-cost provider. The measure requires health carriers to make available an interactive mechanism on their website that enables a covered person to compare costs between providers in-network, calculate estimated out-of-pocket costs, and obtain quality data for those providers, to the extent available.
