The Healthcare Consumer Protection Bill (House Bill 1329) will alleviate unnecessary healthcare costs caused by the high prices charged at urgent care centers when they are tied to hospitals. It will provide disclosure to the patient that the urgent care center is billing as a hospital. Additionally, it prohibits any additional billing that may be caused by services provided by doctors that are out of the insurance network, specifically in cases of emergency and when no other doctors are available.
The Healthcare Consumer Protection Bill will go before the House Health and Human Services Quality Subcommittee this Wednesday at 11am.
Contact your State Representative, who is on the committee considering this proposal, by e-mail or phone and ask them to support the Healthcare Consumer Protection Bill before next Wednesday at 8 am.
