F.S. 624.4411
624.4411 Administrative, provider, and management contracts.
(1) The office may require a multiple-employer welfare arrangement to submit any contract for administrative services, contract with a provider other than an individual physician, contract for management services, or contract with an affiliated person to the office, if the office has reason to believe that the arrangement has entered into a contract which requires it to pay a fee which is unreasonably high in relation to the services provided. Multiple-employer welfare arrangements are prohibited from paying a fee to a sponsoring association unless such fee is directly related to services provided by the association for the arrangement.
(2) After review of a contract, the office may order the arrangement to cancel the contract in accordance with the terms of the contract and applicable law if the office determines that the fees to be paid by the arrangement under the contract are so unreasonably high in relation to the services provided that the contract is detrimental to the policyholders or certificateholders of the arrangement.
(3) All contracts for administrative services, management services, and provider services other than individual physician contracts, and all contracts with affiliated entities, entered into or renewed by an arrangement on or after October 1, 1991, shall contain a provision that the contract shall be canceled upon issuance of an order by the office pursuant to this section.
