Legislation mandating free testing doesn’t put an end to surprise bills from COVID-19

Reimbursement provisions on COVID-19 claims were included in two Coronavirus aid packages signed into law in March. But loopholes in the law and confusion about coverage have led to surprise medical bills that are hundreds or even thousands of dollars. 

As COVID-19 cases continue to rise and the demand for testing and treatment grows, this problem is likely to get worse.  

Learn how you can help protect clients and members from surprise bills on COVID-19 claims
Legislative and cost management experts explain how you can mitigate risk for payers, plans, and members. This webinar will address:
How COVID-19 leads to surprise bills
Where COVID-19 testing, treatment and vaccine reimbursement provisions in recent Congressional acts fall short
How state balance billing laws are triggered with COVID-19 claims and what’s new for 2021
Surprise billing impact on members, employers, and payers
Pricing and advocacy solutions

During this webinar, participates will: 
  • Understand current COVID-19 regulations, how they can help payers, plans, and members, and where they fall short
  • Discover how plans and payers can protect members before and after receiving balance bills
  • Get answers to your questions about COVID-19 balance billing
