HB 1149 -- Health Care Services
This bill requires a health care provider to notify the
collection entity of a payment received from a patient,
insurance company, or third party if that account was turned
over to a collection agency. When an insurance company or other
third-party payor is responsible for payment, nonpayment will
not be placed on the patient's credit report when the reason for
the nonpayment is not caused by the patient.
The bill also requires health carriers offering pharmaceutical
coverage to provide enrollees with a 90-day supply of medication
that is prescribed by a physician for a chronic illness.
