Legislative Update Week of 2.27.17
Surprise Billing Legislation – SB8 & HB71
SB 8 received unanimous approval by the Senate on Friday, which means the bill will proceed to the House of Representatives to be considered. We expect to see some changes to the legislation as it moves through the House but anticipate that consumer protections and transparency requirements will remain intact. HB 71 will be voted on by the House of Representatives tomorrow, February 28, 2017.
