The negotiated rate of payment between an ECP and a health plan company may be cost-based, fee-for-service, capitated, or other risk-sharing arrangement, unless the parties mutually agree to a different rate of payment. An ECP may be capitated only to the extent, and in the same manner, as other health plan company providers are capitated for the same or similar services. An ECP may file a complaint with the commissioner according to Minnesota Statutes, section 62Q.19, if it believes that the negotiated rate is not the same rate per unit of services as is paid to other health plan company providers for the same or similar services. An ECP that has been refused a provider contract because of inability to agree on the rate of payment may use the dispute resolution methods available under Minnesota Statutes, section 62Q.11.
