Every individual or group health insurance contract, or every individual or group hospital or medical expense insurance policy, plan, or group policy delivered, issued for delivery, or renewed in this state on or after January 1, 2013, shall require that the subscriber and each dependent designate a participating primary care provider and the insurer shall collect the designation from the insured. Designation of a primary care provider shall not be a condition of enrollment and failure to designate a primary care provider shall not constitute grounds for cancellation of coverage. For purposes of this section, "primary care provider" means the physician, practice or other medical provider considered by the insured to be his or her usual source of medical care.
