§33-25G-1. Legislative findings.

     The Legislature finds that, in light of the need to provide health care to a Medicaid population that is expected to rise dramatically in the near future, new models of managed care should be explored in order to enhance the state's ability to improve health outcomes and to manage the financial risk associated with the provision of such care. This article provides a licensing and regulatory scheme for provider sponsored networks, an alternative managed care model recognized in federal law, that recognizes the unique features of such entities.
