For Residents in NM: Notice of Consumer Rights Pursuant to the New Mexico Surprise Billing Protection Act
If you are a covered person and you received a surprise bill from a nonparticipating (out-of-network) provider for health care services rendered in an amount that exceeds your cost-sharing obligation that would apply for the same health care services if the services had been provided by a participating (in-network) provider, you may have rights under the New Mexico Surprise Billing Protection Act (the “Act”). The Act generally prohibits health care providers from knowingly submitting a surprise bill for out-of-network services to an insured person that demands payment for any amount in excess of the cost-sharing amounts that would have been imposed by the insured person’s health benefits plan if the health care service from which the surprise bill arises had been rendered by an in-network provider. The Act also provides that it is an unfair practice for a health care provider to knowingly submit a surprise bill to a collection agency.
Pursuant to the Act, please be advised of the following rights:
1. Patients are responsible only for payment of applicable in-network cost-sharing amounts under the patient’s health benefits plan.
2. Patients should contact their insurance carriers in advance and/or the provider when possible, to determine if the scheduled health care services to be provided will be covered at an in-network rate.
3. When prior contact is not possible for the care required, patients should contact their insurance carrier to discuss the surprise billing and to find the correct limitations that may apply.
4. Patients may appeal a health insurer’s determination regarding a surprise bill in accordance with the hearing procedures established by New Mexico’s Patient Protection Act.
5. The Surprise Billing Protection Act SB 337 can be obtained online at https://www.osi.state.nm.us.
6. If additional information or questions arise, you may contact the New Mexico Superintendent of Insurance in Santa Fe, NM.
