HMO's that deny medical treatment can be sued by patients under a bill that has passed the Arizona State Legislature.
The bill would allow patients to sue their HMO if they were denied a recommended treatment or were harmed by their HMO's refusal to provide care.
Doctors could also file suit if the plan didn't pay them for covered services on time.
