Health facilities: billing disclosure.
Exiting law requires every health facility, within 7 days after completion of the patient’s itemized bill, to provide the primary attending health care practitioner a copy of the complete itemized charges for services rendered by the health facility to the health care practitioner’s patient, upon written request specifying the individual patient, when the primary attending health care practitioner is not employed by the health facility and is not a member of an integrated group practice that provided the health facility services. Existing law defines “health facility” for purposes of these provisions.

This bill would make technical, nonsubstantive changes to the definition of “health facility.”
