A surprise bill from a doctor or other medical provider can be unwelcome.
Good news: You might not have to pay it.
A new federal law and 2019 state law ban surprise billing in emergencies or when you didn’t have a choice of doctors. Federal law also protects you from surprise bills from air ambulance services.
If you get a surprise bill, visit the Texas Department of Insurance website, www.tdi.texas.gov and click on “ Get help with a surprise medical bill.”
