In 2014, the NYS passed the out of network and surprise billing law whose purpose is to protect NYS members from surprise bills resulting from the inadvertent use of a non-network physician. We've seen this for years; a member uses a participating surgeon, goes to a participating hospital and both bills are paid by the health plan. But then they get a sizeable bill from the anesthesiologist who, unknown to the member, is not participating. The balance after the health plan payment, assuming there is out of network coverage, is now their responsibility. The Out of Network Law and the Surprise Billing Law both address this situation with greater disclosure requirements plus a dispute resolution process to settle differences over the balance bill. This session will explain how both laws work to address this situation, explain the disclosure requirement and describe the dispute resolution process so you can explain it to your clients.
