ALERT: MANDATORY HEALTH PLAN NETWORK PARTICIPATION DISCLOSURES NOW IN EFFECT!
This law, also known as the Out of Network law, was signed by Governor Murphy on June 1 and is primarily intended to protect patients from receiving health care services from out of network providers who they do not knowingly select, which will ultimately prevent the receipt of a “surprise” out of network bill. While a great deal of these encounters occur in facilities and are associated with other specialties’ procedures, there are parts of this law that will impact all physicians, including family physicians, whether in or out of network.
While the majority of the NJAFP membership are in network physicians, over the last eight years NJAFP remained engaged on this very challenging issue in Trenton to ensure that the in network and out of network dialogue remained distinct.
Under this law, all physicians will be required to disclose network status to their patients prior to the provision of services.
