The purpose of the Patient Protection Act is to regulate aspects of health insurance by specifying patient and provider rights and confirming and clarifying the authority of the department to adopt regulations to provide protections to persons enrolled in managed health care plans. The insurance protections should ensure that managed health care plans treat patients fairly and arrange for the delivery of good quality services.
