“New Jersey Health Care Transparency Act.” This bill requires any advertisement of health care professionals, licensed by the Division of Consumer Affairs, any principal department of the Executive Branch of State government, or any entity within any department or any other entity hereafter created to license or otherwise regulate a health care profession, to include the type of licensure the professional was issued. Advertisements are to exclude deceptive or misleading information relating to the health care professional, including, but not limited to, any affirmative communication or representation that misstates, falsely describes, holds out, or falsely details the professional’s skills, training, expertise, education, public or private board certification, or licensure. Under the bill, every day of a failure to comply is a separate and punishable offense. Any fees or billings charged a patient by a health care professional in violation of this bill would be rescinded or refunded. This includes fees or billings charged to a patient by a third party contracted to collect fees on behalf of a health care professional, the health care professional’s employer, or other entity contracting with the health care professional. Any imposition of professional sanctions, administrative fees, or other disciplinary action taken by the appropriate State entity shall be publicly reported in means determined by that State entity.
