AN ACT to amend the public health law, the social services law  and  the
  public authorities law, in relation to accountable care organizations

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Article 29-E of the public health law, as added by  section
66  of  part  H of chapter 59 of the laws of 2011, is amended to read as
follows:
                              ARTICLE 29-E
         ACCOUNTABLE CARE ORGANIZATIONS [DEMONSTRATION PROGRAM]
Section 2999-n. Accountable care organizations; findings; purpose.
        2999-o. Definitions.
        2999-p. Establishment of [ACO demonstration program] ACOS.
        2999-q. Accountable care organizations; requirements.
        2999-r. Other laws.
  S 2999-n. Accountable  care  organizations;  findings;  purpose.  [The
legislature  intends  to  test the ability of accountable care organiza-
tions to assume a role in delivering an array of health  care  services,
from  primary  and  preventive care through acute inpatient hospital and
post-hospital care.] The legislature finds that the formation and opera-
tion of accountable care organizations under this article,  and  subject
to appropriate regulation, can be consistent with the purposes of feder-
al  and  state  anti-trust, anti-referral, and other statutes, including
reducing over-utilization and expenditures. The legislature  finds  that
the  development  of  accountable  care organizations under this article
will reduce health care costs, promote effective  allocation  of  health
care  resources,  and  enhance  the  quality and accessibility of health
care. The legislature finds that this article is  necessary  to  promote
the  formation  of accountable care organizations and protect the public
interest and the interests of patients and health care providers.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
