Health Care Partner Khaled Klele Tapped by NJBIZ re Out-of-Network Consumer Protection Act
Riker Danzig Health Care and Litigation Partner, Khaled J. Klele, was quoted in the NJBIZ article entitled “Still Surprising – The State Law Designed to Prevent Excessive Medical Bills is a Year Old but Remains Incomplete.” The article, which ran on June 10, 2019, discussed the Out-of-Network Consumer Protection, Transparency, Cost Containment and Accountability Act Governor Phil Murphy signed into law in June 2018. The article noted that solo physicians and small practice groups in particular are having trouble getting a handle on the new requirements, “because they don’t have extensive, in-house support,” explained Khaled. “For example, based on the name of the act, many smaller groups think it only applies to out-of-network activity, but in fact they need to make appropriate disclosures even if the physicians are in-network. It would be helpful if we had specific regulations.”
