Coalition Supports Legislation to End Surprise Hospital Bills

NYSCOP joins a coalition of organizations representing consumers, health, labor, and business in support of legislation to protect patients and end “surprise” hospital bills.

By amending the financial services law, the bill (S.3171-A/A.264-B) would subject out-of-network hospital emergency care charges to the existing Independent Dispute Resolution (IDR) process.

The legislation passed in the Assembly and we hope it will pass in the Senate as well.
