Upon request of the patient's health care service plan or its contracting medical provider, the noncontracting hospital shall provide the treating physician and surgeon's diagnosis and any other relevant information reasonably necessary for the health care service plan or the plan's contracting medical provider to make a decision to authorize poststabilization care or to assume management of the patient's care by prompt transfer.
