This bill prohibits health care providers and health care practitioners from denying health care services or treatment based on the manner in which a patient intends to pay for health care services or treatment. The bill also requires health care providers and health care practitioners to disclose the cash price of health care services or treatments and allow a patient to pay cash instead of filing an insurance claim. The bill also prohibits a health insurance carrier from prohibiting a provider from providing an enrollee with the option of paying the provider’s cash price for health care services and disclosing to an enrollee if the cash price is less than the enrollee’s cost-sharing amount.
