Nobody likes getting a medical bill they weren’t expecting.
Good news: You might not have to pay it.
A new federal law and a 2019 state law bans out-of-network doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers from billing you in emergencies or when you didn’t have a choice of doctors. These bills are called “surprise bills.”
Federal law also protects you from surprise bills from air ambulance services.
We have tips about what to do with a surprise bill. Visit our webpage, How to get help with a surprise medical bill.
