    6         (4) PLAN REQUIREMENTS.—An eligible plan must disclose any
    7  business relationship that it has with any other eligible plan
    8  that responds to the invitation to negotiate. The agency may not
    9  select plans in the same region for the same managed care
   10  program which have a business relationship with each other. The
   11  agency may not select a long-term care provider service network
   12  authorized under s. 409.912(2) in any region that has a business
   13  relationship with a health maintenance organization licensed
   14  under chapter 641, and may not select a long-term care provider
   15  service network in any region that has a business relationship
   16  with any entity that has a controlling interest in a health
   17  maintenance organization licensed under chapter 641 or a common
   18  parent of a health maintenance organization licensed under
   19  chapter 641. An eligible plan that fails to comply with this
   20  subsection is disqualified from participation in any region for
   21  the first full contract period after the agency discovers the
   22  business relationship. For the purpose of this section, the term
   23  “business relationship” means a controlling interest, an
   24  affiliate or subsidiary relationship, a common parent, or any
   25  mutual interest in any limited partnership, limited liability
   26  partnership, limited liability company, or other entity or
   27  business association, including all wholly or partially owned
   28  subsidiaries, parent companies, or affiliates of such entities,
   29  business associations, or other enterprises, which exists for
   30  the purpose of making a profit. The term does not include
   31  subcontract arrangements unless the subcontract is between a
   32  plan and an entity that is a parent, affiliate, or subsidiary of
   33  the plan.
