An Act relating to: allowing discounts for prompt payment of health care fees. This bill specifies that discounts for prompt payment do not violate prohibitions on reducing certain fees for health care services. Under current state law, a health care provider is prohibited from reducing or offering to reduce coinsurance or a
deductible of an individual covered under a health insurance policy that is required under the terms of the policy, unless paying the amount would be an undue financial hardship to the individual. This bill specifies as exempt from that and any other state law prohibitions a discount offered by a health care provider to an individual covered under a health insurance policy under certain circumstances.
