Your Rights and Protections Against Surprise Medical Bills

When you get emergency care or get treated by an out-of-network provider at an in-network hospital or ambulatory surgical center, you are protected from surprise billing, or balance billing.

What is “balance billing” (sometimes called “surprise billing”)?

When you see a doctor or other health care provider, you may owe certain out-of-pocket costs, such as a copayment, coinsurance, and/or a deductible. You may have other costs or have to pay the entire bill if you see a provider or visit a health care facility that isn’t in your health plan’s network.

“Out-of-network” describes providers and facilities that haven’t signed a contract with your health plan. Out-of-network providers may be permitted to bill you for the difference between what your plan agreed to pay and the full amount charged for a service. This is called “balance billing.” This amount is likely more than in-network costs for the same service and might not count toward your annual out-of-pocket limit.

“Surprise billing” is an unexpected balance bill. This can happen when you can’t control who is involved in your care—like when you have an emergency or when you schedule a visit at an in- network facility but are unexpectedly treated by an out-of-network provider.

You are protected from balance billing for:

Emergency services

If you have an emergency medical condition and get emergency services from an out-of- network provider or facility, the most the provider or facility may bill you is your plan’s in- network cost-sharing amount (such as copayments and coinsurance). You can’t be balance billed for these emergency services. This includes services you may get after you’re in stable condition, unless you give written consent and give up your protections not to be balanced billed for these post-stabilization services.

Certain services at an in-network hospital or ambulatory surgical center

When you get certain services from an in-network hospital or ambulatory surgical center, certain providers there may be out-of-network. In these cases, the most those providers may bill you is your plan’s in-network cost-sharing amount. This applies to emergency medicine, anesthesia, pathology, radiology, laboratory, neonatology, assistant surgeon, hospitalist, or intensivist services. These providers can’t balance bill you and may not ask you to give up your protections not to be balance billed.

If you get other services at these in-network facilities, out-of-network providers can’t balance bill you, unless you give written consent and give up your protections.

You’re never required to give up your protections from balance billing. You also aren’t required to get care out-of-network. You can choose a provider or facility in your plan’s network.

When balance billing isn’t allowed, you also have the following protections:

  • You are only responsible for paying your share of the cost (like the copayments, coinsurance, and deductibles that you would pay if the provider or facility was in-network). Your health plan will pay out-of-network providers and facilities
  • Your health plan generally must:
    • Cover emergency services without requiring you to get approval for services in advance (prior authorization).
    • Cover emergency services by out-of-network
    • Base what you owe the provider or facility (cost-sharing) on what it would pay an in-network provider or facility and show that amount in your explanation of benefits
    • Count any amount you pay for emergency services or out-of-network services toward your deductible and out-of-pocket

Understanding cost in advance (uninsured or self-pay)

If you’re uninsured or self-pay (insured but not planning to use your insurance to pay for your care), health care providers and facilities must give you a good faith estimate before you get care. If after getting your bill you realize that any of your providers or facilities billed you for an amount that’s $400 or more than what is on your good faith estimate, you can use a new dispute resolution process to request that an independent third-party, called a dispute resolution entity, review your case and determine an appropriate payment. This process is referred to as “patient-provider dispute resolution.” The dispute resolution entity will review the good faith estimate, your bill, and information submitted by your provider or facility to determine if you should pay the amount on your good faith estimate, the billed charge, or an amount in between the two. There’s a $25 non-refundable administrative fee to start this process.

If you believe you’ve been wrongly billed, you may contact CMS to file a complaint by calling 1-800-985-3059. Or Visit https://www.cms.gov/nosurprise/consumers for more information about your rights under federal law.

This process is referred to as “patient-provider dispute resolution.” You’re eligible for the patient-provider dispute resolution process only if your bill from an individual provider or facility is at least $400 more than the total expected costs on the good faith estimate from that provider or facility.

Norton Healthcare strives to provide you with an accurate estimate every time but we know there are times a mistake can be made. If that happens, please give us the opportunity to make it right by directly contacting Norton Healthcare at (502) 272-5330, Option# 3.

Standard Hospital Charges

Calling your insurer is always a good idea if you’re considering an elective procedure and want to get a general idea of your out-of-pocket costs. Your insurer can help you understand how your coverages and deductibles work as well as your current payment history as an essential first step.

If you want to get a more general idea of costs or compare your likely costs to those incurred by others, there are a few public pricing resources to consider:

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services

Medicare releases annual payment information for inpatient and outpatient procedures. For more information, visit cms.gov.

All-Payer Claims Database

Some states have large-scale databases that collect medical, pharmacy, and dental claims, as well as eligibility and provider files from private and public payers. For more information, visit apcdcouncil.org.

Patients should contact Norton Healthcare directly for any further details.
