Equal Reimbursement Rates for Out-of-Network Air Ambulance Providers

On May 10, 2017, Gov. Burgum signed SB 2231 into law. This law requires benefit plans to provide reimbursement rates for out-of-network air ambulance provider services that are equal to the insurer’s average rates for in-network air ambulance providers. The law further states that insurers can’t use the average of their in-network rates for ambulance providers for the purpose of decreasing contractual rates between insurers and air ambulance providers.

This law is effective beginning on Jan. 1, 2018.
