On June 19, 2015, Gov. Abbott signed HB 1624 into law. The legislation requires issuers to maintain on their websites detailed information of their drug formularies and also a directory of providers who are in the plans’ network. There must also be a direct link to this information on the SBC of each plan offered by the health insurance issuer. The information must be publically accessible to enrollees, prospective enrollees and others without providing a password or user name. The legislation is effective Sept. 1, 2015 but first applies for plans issued or renewed on or after Jan. 1, 2016.
