Billing & Insurance

Surprise Bill

Effective April 1, 2015, NYS passed the "Surprise Bill Law". This law is in response to consumer complaints involving inadequate reimbursement fro treatment received by out-of-network physicians. With regard to emergency services, the law provides that patients will not be liable to pay more than their in-network cost share or co-payments, regardless of the network provider where there were no in-network providers available, or where the provider failed to provide the disclosure required under the law, the patient is only responsible for their in-network cost sharing and may assign their claim to the out-of-network provider, who must seek any additional reimbursement directly from the patient's health insurer.

the law also requires disclosures regarding out of pocket expense to be made by health plans, providers and hospitals. With respect to providers, these disclosures include:

  • Prior to providing non-emergency services, providers must disclose to patients their right to know what will be billed for the procedure and if the patient request, they must disclose the anticipated cost, warning patients that the cost could go up if unanticipated consequences occur.
  • Providers must provide patients with their network and hospital affiliations in writing or on-line.
  • When patients make an appointment, providers must indicate whether they participate in a patient's network.
  • If other professional will be involved in a patient's care, the patient must be advised of who might be including and how to learn how much the network will cover for those providers.

If you receive a Surprise bill for health care services and want the services to be treated as in-network, please see the Benefit Form under Patient Forms.
