SF 2673 (see companion bill HF 2599) – MinnesotaStatus: In Process
Year Introduced: 2023

It requires hospitals to certify they complied with certain elements of the Minnesota attorney general/hospital agreement before taking certain steps to collect medical debt owed by patients, and prohibits hospitals from charging patients more than the hospital would be reimbursed from its most favored insurer, if the patient has an annual household income of less than $125,000 and the treatment or service is not covered by insurance.
