In recent months, surprise medical billing has garnered increased attention from lawmakers and the news media. Surprise medical billing may arise when a patient visits an in-network facility and receives care from out-of-network physicians. The “surprise” can occur when a patient confirms a hospital is covered by their insurance and later finds out that the physicians providing care are out-of-network providers. A recent Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA) analysis found that out-of-network billing is becoming more common and potentially more costly in both the emergency department and inpatient settings.
