The Act, titled the Consumers Health Insurance Protection Act, provides that insurers must follow certain procedures when precertifying or verifying enrollee benefits. The Act requires insurers to provide continuity of care to certain individuals in the event they, or a physician, cancels a physician's contract. The Act also makes discrimination based on color, race, religion, and ethnic or national origin in the insurance industry generally an unfair practice. The Act requires insurers to notify enrollees of plan termination, cancellation, or nonrenewal, and of any resulting conversion or continuation rights.
