Uniform Claims Review Process Study

In May 2008, as part of its health reform efforts, the Minnesota Legislature passed legislation (Chapter 358, Article 4, Sec. 13) that requires that "the commissioner of health shall establish a work group including representatives of the Minnesota Hospital Association, Minnesota Medical Association, and Minnesota Council of Health Plans to make recommendations on the potential for reducing claims adjudication costs of health care providers and health plan companies by adopting more uniform payment methods, and the potential impact of establishing uniform prices that would replace current prices negotiated individually by providers with separate payers. The work group shall make its recommendations to the commissioner by January 1, 2010, and shall identify specific action steps needed to achieve the recommendations.”
