On Monday, June 11, Leslie Howard shared her insights on the NJ Surprise Bill at the NJ Doctor-Patient Alliance (NJDPA) Meeting to a packed audience of 250 healthcare providers and professionals. She provided a comprehensive roadmap of the bills impact highlighting the types of commercial plans and services that will be subject to the bill. But she didn’t stop there — she also provided an in-depth view into the documentation requirements that providers will need to adopt in order to comply with the latest regulations. At first blush, it appeared that the NJ Surprise Bill could be far reaching for OON providers. However, Leslie’s analysis has concluded that only 20-30% of NJ Patients will be covered under the bill and possibly even less as employers continue to shift toward the self-insured plan structure. Please check out her presentation below for all the details. In the next few months, we will be keeping the out-of-network provider community abreast of the changes, directives and required documentation as the State begins to fine tune this bill. As always, Cohen and Howard is committed to providing our clients with relevant, actionable advice and continues to be a leader in recovering out-of-network fees for providers.
On July 9, 2018 Leslie Howard hosted a live webinar and that outlined the impact of the NJ Surprise Bill for the out-of-network provider community including plans covered, disclosure requirements, dispute resolution and much, much more. See the entire presentation below.
