(1) Study. (a) The commissioner, in consultation with the department of health services, shall study the feasibility and cost-effectiveness of requiring every health insurer to issue to its insureds uniform machine-readable health insurance identification cards and to establish a computerized support system for the cards that will accept and respond to electronically conveyed requests from health care providers for information related to an insured, such as eligibility, coverages and authorizations. The study shall consider the feasibility and cost-effectiveness of including the medical assistance program under subch. IV of ch. 49 in the system of identification cards and the computerized support system and the feasibility of using those systems to coordinate the payment of benefits by health insurers and the medical assistance program.
(b) On or before February 1, 1994, the commissioner shall submit the results of the study to the legislature under s. 13.172(2) and to the governor.
(2) Rules. If, as a result of the study under sub. (1), the commissioner determines that a health insurance identification card system and its computerized support system are feasible and would be cost-effective, the commissioner shall promulgate rules to establish and implement the systems.
