Protections from Surprise Billing

When you get emergency care or are treated by an out-of-network provider at an in-network hospital or ambulatory surgical center, you are protected from balance billing (sometimes called “surprise billing”). In these cases, you shouldn't be charged more than your plan's copayments, coinsurance and/or deductible.
