Provides that if a Medicaid enrollee of a managed care organization selects a plan based on the in-network status of (i) an existing primary care provider or (ii) up to 2 existing specialty care providers for an existing condition that is under active treatment, the managed care organization may not change the Medicaid enrollee's selected provider in (i) or (ii) for the remainder of the 12-month period following enrollment in the managed care health plan without permission by the Medicaid enrollee.
