Surprise balance billing is an issue that is not only generating national interest but also legislative engagement on the state level. In Part I of this series, Holly Louie, past president of the Healthcare Business and Management Association, reported on such billing related to insurance company denials. For Part II, Matthew Albright, former Director of the Administrative Simplification Group at the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), reports on billing laws on the state level, as well as billing protections by the U.S. Senate.
Albright examines trends in surprise balance billing laws being seen passed in the states, specifically with regard to reimbursement benchmarks. And touches on what states are considering balance bill laws in their 2019 legislative sessions and what the status is on the U.S. Senate’s bipartisan efforts in this area.
