Health care coverage — out of network coverage: This surprise medical bill legislation aims to prevent patients from receiving out-of-network charges after undergoing a procedure or agreeing to services. The law requires insurers to reimburse out-of-network providers at the greater of 125 percent of the rate Medicare pays, or at the insurer’s average contracted rate.
