Section 606 Hold harmless and assignment of benefits for surprise bills for insureds

Financial Services Law (FIS)

Hold harmless and assignment of benefits for surprise bills for insureds. When an insured assigns benefits for a surprise bill in writing to a non-participating physician that knows the insured is insured under a health care plan, the non-participating physician shall not bill the insured except for any applicable copayment, coinsurance or deductible that would be owed if the insured utilized a participating physician.
