New York State Surprise Bill Goes in Effect

On March 31, 2015, the Emergency Medical Services and Surprise Bills law, commonly referred to as the "Surprise Bill Law," was passed to protect consumers against unknowingly receiving care from out-of-network providers and facing surprise medical bills.

When you come to St. James Mercy Hospital (SJMH) for care and treatment, it is important to know that physician services you receive in the hospital setting—professional fees for anesthesiologist, radiologist, emergency room physician, surgeon—are not included in the hospital charges. Physicians and physician groups bill for their services separately, and may or may not participate in the same health plans as the hospital. You should check with the physician arranging for the hospital services to determine the health care plans in which the physician participates.
