NEW PATIENT DISCLOSURE REQUIREMENTS EFFECTIVE MARCH 31, 2015
Public Health Law §24, enacted into law last year, requires, effective March 31, 2015, that all physicians, other health care providers and hospitals make certain disclosures to patients in treatment. The new statutory requirement was prompted by the perceived problem of so-called “surprise bills” received by patients when they received inpatients or outpatient hospital and other outpatient surgical procedures.
