Requires the Joint Legislative Program Evaluation Oversight Committee (Committee) to include a study of the contested case procedure for administrative review of agency determinations which have an adverse effect on Medicaid providers in the 2013-2014 Work Plan for the Program Evaluation Division (PED). Require that the following be included in the study: (1) a review of the procedures set forth in Article 3 of GS Chapter 150B to determine whether the procedures should be modified to streamline the process and reduce any case backlogs, (2) consideration of alternative methods of review other than the contested case process in Article 3 of GS Chapter 150B, and (3) a review of GS 108C-12 to determine whether amendments to the law would improve the cost-effectiveness and efficiency of the Medicaid appeal process. Requires that the PED submit its findings to the Committee and the Joint Legislative Administrative Procedure Oversight Committee at a date to be determined by the Committee.
