Your Rights and Protections Against Surprise Medical Bills

At NYC Health + Hospitals we are committed to providing our patients with information on your rights and protections against surprise medical bills under federal and NY state law, so you can make informed decisions about where you receive your care and how much you may be expected to pay out-of-pocket.

The federal No Surprises Act and NY law protects our patients from surprise medical bills (unexpected bills for care received from providers who are out-of-network or not participating with a patient’s health plan), provides for patient access to Good Faith Estimates of their out of pocket costs when receiving care from out-of-network providers or on a self-pay basis, if uninsured, removes patients from payment disputes between a health care provider or facility and their health plan, and establishes appeal or dispute resolution processes for uninsured or self-pay patients to dispute bills for care which are significantly higher than the Good Faith Estimate for their care.
