  • New York’s Emergency Services and Surprise Bills law was created to provide consumer protections from medical bills received from out-of-network physicians for services rendered in emergency rooms.  It also requires disclosures regarding out-of-pocket expenses to be made by health plans, providers and hospitals, and imposes network adequacy rules upon health plans with comprehensive provider networks.
