S.B. 10-183: Extend Prohibition on Medical Balance Billing
Prior case law interpreting Colorado's health insurance statutes had allowed "balance billing" for increased charges of out-of-network providers working in in-network facilities without the prior knowledge or consent of insured patients. The general assembly legislatively overruled that interpretation, subject to future review and repeal. The act continues indefinitely the requirement that health insurers hold consumers harmless for charges over and above the in-network rates for services rendered in an in-network facility.
APPROVED by Governor May 27, 2010 EFFECTIVE May 27, 2010
