Bulletin No. 18-14, Implementation of P.L. 2018, c. 32 (N.J.S.A. 26:2SS-1 to -20) Out-of-Network Consumer Protection, Transparency, Cost Containment and Accountability Act, has been issued by the New Jersey Department of Banking and Insurance (DOBI). On June 1, 2018, the Out-Of-Network Consumer Protection, Transparency, Cost Containment, and Accountability Act, P.L. 2018, c. 32 (codified at N.J.S.A. 26:2SS-1 to -20), was enacted, and became effective on August 30, 2018.

NJBIA strongly advocated for this law because surprise out-of-network costs play an increasingly significant role in the rising cost of healthcare for both large and small employers in New Jersey, triggering both higher premiums and out-of-pocket expenses.

The links to the bulletin are posted below.

  • Attachment A: Appeal and Arbitration Processes Grid
  • Attachment B: Application for Arbitration of Payment for Inadvertent, Emergency or Urgent Out-of-Network Health Care Services
  • Attachment C: Disclosures to Covered Persons Regarding Out-of-Network Treatment

We anticipate the New Jersey Department of Banking and Insurance to propose formal regulations for public comment in the NJ Register in the near future.
