The plan shall make a request to the department to temporarily disenroll any enrollee for the month or months in which the patient is hospitalized and remains in stable condition, and refuses to be transferred from a nonplan provider’s facility to a plan’s facility when it is medically safe to do so.

This section shall only be applicable in Los Angeles County because of problems the county has experienced in treating nonplan Medi-Cal enrollees in county hospitals.
