DISCLOSURE OF PATIENT LIABILITY FOR PAYMENTS: would require health benefit plans to, on request of a plan enrollee, provide an estimate of payments that will be made for any health care services or supply and must also specify applicable deductibles, copayments, or coinsurances—within 10 business days.
H.B. 3102 would also require health care practitioners and facilities to, at least 3 business days prior to providing a patient with a non-emergency care, disclose the price, in writing, that would be accepted as payment in full for the service. The bill prohibits health care practitioners and facilities who do not provide proper notice from attempting to collect any payment for such services, transferring or sell a third party the right to collect any billed amount from the patient, or furnishing adverse information to a consumer reporting agency regarding the billed amount.
