AN ACT REVISING HEALTH CARE PROVIDER NETWORK DISCLOSURE LAWS: would require health care providers, outpatient centers for surgical care, clinics, and hospitals to provide patients with estimated charges for health care services or courses of treatment that exceed $500—upon patient request. The estimate would be required at the time the service is scheduled or within 10 business days of a patient’s request—whichever is sooner—and must include out-of-pocket charges. This would not be required for emergency medical services provided for the treatment of an emergency medical condition.
