John Pezold's thoughts
HB 71 provides consumer protections for health insurance. The bill requires providers to disclose to patients, in writing and via a website, that health benefit plans provide access to specific hospitals. If the health care provider is out of network, then the patient must be informed of an estimated amount of cost to the patient.More information on legis.ga.gov
