AN ACT TO ALLOW THE NORTH CAROLINA STATE HEALTH PLAN FOR TEACHERS AND STATE EMPLOYEES TO ADOPT A PROGRAM TO INCENTIVIZE PLAN MEMBERS TO REPORT ACTIVITIES SUCH AS FRAUD, WASTE, AND ABUSE BY HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS PROVIDING SERVICES TO PLAN MEMBERS AND TO ESTABLISH GOVERNING STANDARDS FOR PROPERTY FINDERS.
Adds the following to GS 135-48.15, which establishes State policies regarding reporting to the State Health Plan for Teachers and State Employees (SHP), Attorney General, or other appropriate authority any evidence of activity related to the SHP involving any violation of State or federal law, rule, or regulation; fraud; misappropriation of State resources; or gross mismanagement, a gross waste of monies, or gross abuse of authority. Authorizes the State Treasurer to adopt rules to assist in the identification and investigation of the described activities undertaken by a health care provider that provides services to SHP members. Requires the SHP, if it adopts a program to encourage its members to report these activities, to expend State funds in furtherance of the policy objectives and adopt rules to offer an incentive for SHP members of up to 2% of any net recovery made by the SHP resulting from the member report.
