House panel sets minimum insurance reimbursement for KY dialysis centers
Louisville Courier-Journal, March 6, 2008
A House committee has approved a bill to set minimum insurance reimbursements for Kentucky kidney dialysis centers that aren't in an insurer's contracted network. The House Banking and Insurance Committee voted 15-5 in favor of House Bill 433, with four members passing. The bill now goes to the full House for consideration. The measure was proposed by the dialysis industry because health insurers have drastically reduced the amounts paid to dialysis centers that haven't joined networks, which require acceptance of negotiated prices.
