This bill prohibits healthcare providers from collecting out-of-network charges from an insured if the written notice required by this bill has not been provided and signed by the insured. This bill adds a similar prohibition to the present law provisions governing healthcare providers and facilities, specifying that they are prohibited from collecting out-of-network charges from an insured, or the insurer on behalf of the insured, unless they provide written notice, prior to treatment or service, regarding being out-of-network and the consequences of that on the insured, such as a statement that the insured agrees to receive service from the provider and an estimate of the amount to be charged.

Enacted at Tenn. Code Ann. § 56-7-120.
