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