Surprise / Balance Billing Protection

When you get emergency care or are treated by an out-of-network provider at an in-network hospital you are protected from balance billing (also called surprise billing). In these cases, you shouldn't be charged more than your plan's copayments, coinsurance and/or deductible. You have rights and protections against surprise medical bills.
