Subchapter T. QUALITY OF CARE 28 TAC §11.1903

The Commissioner of Insurance adopts the repeal of §11.1903 concerning quality improvement committees of health maintenance organizations (HMOs). The repeal of §11.1903 is made without changes to the proposal as published in the April 26, 2002 issue of the Texas Register (27 TexReg 3447) and will not be republished.

Repeal of this section is necessary to eliminate redundant provisions and to incorporate provisions of this section into the adopted amendments to §§11.1901­11.1902 which are published elsewhere in this issue of the Texas Register.

The repeal will result in the elimination of this section which incorporates the provisions of this section into the adopted amendments to §§11.1901-11.1902.

No comments were received.

Repeal of §11.1903 is adopted pursuant to the Insurance Code Article 20A.37 and §36.001. Article 20A.37(b) requires each HMO to have an ongoing internal quality assurance program to monitor and evaluate its health care services in all institutional and noninstitutional contexts and authorizes the Commissioner to establish, by rule, minimum standards and requirements for these programs, including, but not limited to, standards for assuring availability, accessibility, quality and continuity of care. Section 36.001 provides that the Commissioner of Insurance may adopt rules to execute the duties and functions of the Texas Department of Insurance only as authorized by statute.
