State roundup: New Jersey unveils managed care contracting bill


A look at state legislation affecting primary care doctors.

NEW JERSEY lawmakers introduced a managed care contracting bill in July that would require health plans to provide fee schedules to physicians, standardize contract forms, and mandate notice and written acceptance of any contract changes with no risk to physicians if they refuse the amendments.

WISCONSIN: The governor approved legislation in late June creating a patient-centered medical home pilot program for the state's Medicaid population. The pilot includes a still-undetermined monthly per-patient management fee in addition to Medicaid reimbursements.

MASSACHUSETTS: The commonwealth cut its healthcare budget by $168 million to help close a $5 billion gap in the overall budget.
