Assembly Bill 72: How to Challenge the Interim Payment for Out-of-Network Services at In-Network Facilities

Webinar | On-Demand

In September, Governor Jerry Brown signed a controversial bill, Assembly Bill 72, into law. This law, implemented July 1, 2017, changes the billing practices of non-participating physicians providing non-emergent care at in-network facilities including hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers and laboratories.

The new law requires plans and insurers to reimburse physicians at an interim rate. However, it also includes mechanisms for physicians to challenge the interim payment. Learn about the different options for challenging the interim payment, including the newly created Independent Dispute Resolution Processes with both regulators, an overview of how to access the dispute options, and California Medical Association (CMA) resources available to assist physician members.
