This excerpt taken from the CNC 10-K filed Feb 24, 2006. Internet Website


The HMO must develop and maintain, consistent with HHSC standards and Section 843.2015 of the Texas Insurance Code and other applicable state laws, a website to provide general information about the HMO’s Program(s), its Provider Network, its customer services, and its Complaints and Appeals process. The HMO may develop a page within its existing website to meet the requirements of this section. The HMO must maintain a Provider Directory for its HMO Program(s) on the HMO’s website with designation of open versus closed panels. The HMO’s website must comply with the Marketing Policies and Procedures for each applicable HHSC HMO Program.


The website’s HMO Program content must be:


  1. Written in Major Population Group languages (which under this contract include only English and Spanish);


  2. Culturally appropriate;


  3. Written for understanding at the 6th grade reading level; and


  4. Be geared to the health needs of the enrolled HMO Program population.


To minimize download and “wait times,” the website must avoid tools or techniques that require significant memory or disk resources or require special intervention on the customer side to install plug-ins or additional software. Use of proprietary items that would require a specific browser are not allowed. HHSC strongly encourages the use of tools that take advantage of efficient data access methods and reduce the load on the server or bandwidth.
