Block Transfer Filings, 28 C.C.R. § 1300.67.1.3

This regulation, which became effective in August of 2005, establishes standards for redirecting enrollees to one or more contracting providers when their health plan terminates or does not renew the contract with their provider group or hospital. The regulation applies to transfers of 2,000 or more enrollees. Among other provisions, it requires health plans to file with the Department of Managed Health Care, no later than 75 days before the termination, a detailed transition plan to ensure continuity of care for enrollees. It also requires plans to mail notices of the transfer to affected enrollees at least 60 days prior to the proposed termination date. [Download]
