Beginning January 2022, consumers with health coverage through their employer, Health Insurance Marketplace, or an individual health insurance plan purchased directly from an insurance company are protected from surprise billing. These rules:
If you don’t have insurance or choose to pay for care without using your insurance (also known as “self-paying” for care), these new rules make sure you can get a “good faith estimate” of how much your health care will cost before you get it, and might help them if you get a bill that’s larger than expected.
Some health insurance coverage programs already have protections against high medical bills. You’re already protected against surprise medical billing if you have coverage through Medicare, Medicaid, Indian Health Services, Veterans Affairs Health Care, or TRICARE.
If you believe you have been wrongly billed, you may contact District Medical Group (DMG) via email at email@example.com or by calling 602-470-5075.
