MetroPlusHealth wants you to know your rights and protections against surprise medical bills.
When you get emergency care or are treated by an out-of-network doctor or specialist at an in-network hospital or ambulatory surgical center, you are protected from “balance billing” (sometimes called “surprise billing”). In these cases, you shouldn’t be charged more than your plan’s in-network copayments, coinsurance, and/or deductible.
You’re protected from balance billing for:
- Emergency services
- Certain services at an in-network hospital or ambulatory surgical center
- Services referred by your in-network doctor
