If you’d like more information on your rights under the law, please see the following notices:

 

The “Requirements Related to Surprise Billing; Part I,” is an interim final rule that will restrict excessive out of pocket costs to consumers from surprise billing and balance billing. Surprise billing happens when people unknowingly get care from providers that are outside of their health plan’s network and can happen for both emergency and non-emergency care. Balance billing, when a provider charges a patient the remainder of what their insurance does not pay, is currently prohibited in both Medicare and Medicaid. This rule will extend similar protections to Americans insured through employer-sponsored and commercial health plans.For more information, please download the model notice and the flyer from HealthHelp.ca.gov.

The Federal Government has finalized the “Transparency in Coverage” Rule, which requires health insurers and group health plans to provide cost-sharing data to consumers via machine-readable files. These files must offer pricing data for covered items and services based on in-network negotiated payment rates and historical out-of-network allowed amounts. Anthem, Silgan’s medical plan administrator, has provided a link to this information that will be active beginning July 1, 2022.Another aspect of these guidelines requires a consumer price transparency tool. This online tool will include personalized, real-time, cost-share estimates for covered services and items.These new transparency regulations were created to give access to information on the costs of healthcare services. This will better help better estimate and understand out-of-pocket expenses before they are incurred.The link below will allow you to search for your files using Silgan Containers Identification Number (EIN) 061269834.
