Arizona Surprise Billing Laws Take Effect January 1, 2019 


Beginning January 1, 2019, Arizona will join more than 25 states with laws in effect regulating out-of-network provider claimsThanks to the intense lobbying efforts of the Arizona Medical Association (ArMA)Arizona Osteopathic Medical Association (AOMA) and other physician groups in 2017legislative solutions that would have affixed out-of-network payments with in-network or Medicare rates found in other states were prevented.  


Arizona’s surprise billing laws impose new requirements for patient disclosure to prevent unexpected out-of-network bills, and, if necessary, a mandated dispute resolution process to compel parties to resolve payment disputes. 


If you are a provider of out-of-network services, we urge you to familiarize yourself with the new lawand processes before January 1, 2019 and incorporate its policies into your clinical practice.
