New Law Protects Consumers from Surprise Medical Bills
A new law created by Assembly Bill (AB) 72 (Bonta, Chapter 492, Statutes of 2016) protects consumers from surprise medical bills when they go to in-network facilities such as hospitals, labs or imaging centers. This new consumer protection starts July 1, 2017, and makes sure consumers only have to pay their in-network cost sharing. Providers now cannot send consumers out-of-network bills when the consumer did everything right and went to an in-network facility.
