Following is an excerpt:

Earlier this year, the New York Legislature enacted and Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed legislation that will impact billing and reimbursement for some out-of-network health care services, require new disclosures from providers regarding their health plan participation status and add new rules for health plans regarding networks and reimbursement for out-of-network services. Given that the implementation date for this law is April 1, 2015, it is critical for providers and health plans to create an action plan to ensure compliance with the requirements of this law.
