Ef­fec­tive April 1, 2015

Ap­plies to ser­vices per­formed by an out-of-net­work provider at a net­work fa­cil­ity or when a net­work doc­tor refers to a non-net­work provider

Pa­tients do not have to pay out-of-net­work charges for emer­gency ser­vices that are higher than in-net­work charges

Out-of-net­work providers may dis­pute the amount the health plan pays them for emer­gency ser­vices through an in­de­pen­dent dis­pute res­o­lu­tion process
