CMA to host webinar on AB 72 out-of-network billing October 13, 2016 CMA, General Webinars, Out of Network Care 0 In September 2016, Governor Jerry Brown signed a controversial bill, Assembly Bill 72, into law. This bill will change the billing practices of non-participating physicians providing non-emergent care at in-network hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers and laboratories. The October 19 webinar will present an overview of the new law, and will help physicians understand the circumstances under which the bill applies, how physicians can continue to charge their usual and customary rates, and how the bill provides an opportunity to improve network adequacy standards. Presented by Janus Norman, California Medical Association (CMA) senior vice president of government relations and political operations, this webinar is free to CMA members.

CMA has also published an FAQ, “A Physician's Guide to AB 72: Questions and Answers” to help clarify the new law and to address the concerns and questions of CMA members. Comments are closed.
