HCS/SS/SB 884 - This act modifies what is required of contracting entities when selling, assigning, or otherwise granting access to the dental care services of participating providers and third parties that purchase or access those services through the contracting party. Contracting entities are required to provide information to participating providers to identify third parties that have contracted to receive access to dental services from the participating providers both in writing upon request or entering a contract with participating providers. Contracting entities must maintain a website or toll-free number through which a participating provider may obtain identifying information for insurance carriers to be used to reimburse the participating provider.

This act contains provisions similar to HB 2172 (2014).
