GIC Balance Billing Protections

SECTION 23.   Section 20 of chapter 32A of the General Laws, as so appearing, is hereby amended by striking out, in lines 3 and 4, the words, "as an indemnity plan."

This section expands the balance billing protections currently available to members of Group Insurance Commission indemnity plans to all of the plans offered through the Group Insurance Commission. This change would prevent providers from billing GIC members the balance of costs for which they are not reimbursed by the health plan.
