WVC 33 - 25 A- 35 §33-25A-35. Rural health maintenance organizations.
The Legislature finds that the provisions of this article, and in particular, the financial requirements that are conditions precedent to the establishment of a health maintenance organization, may be unnecessarily restrictive as applied to small managed care organizations to operate in rural areas of the state, and that the public interest may be served by the development of less restrictive standards permitting the creation of rural health maintenance organizations. Therefore, the commissioner shall develop and present to the joint committee on government and finance, not later than the fifteenth day of January, one thousand nine hundred ninety-seven, a proposal for legislation to be considered during the regular session of the Legislature in the year one thousand nine hundred ninety-seven, providing standards for the development and operation of rural health maintenance organizations.
