 more efficient and uniform structure to promote the prudent  development
 of PACE organizations, to promote better health outcomes for New Yorkers
 enrolled  in PACE organizations, and to realize administrative efficien-

 tions  as integrated providers of care.  PACE organizations shall not be

 public health law.
