Current Bill Summary

SB 1076 - This act provides that no licensed health care professional shall charge, bill, or solicit payment for anatomic pathology services, unless the services are rendered personally by the health care professional or under the health care professional's direct supervision. No patient, insurer, third-party payor, hospital, public health clinic, or nonprofit health clinic shall be required to reimburse any licensed health care professional for charges or claims submitted in violation of this act. Nothing in this act will prohibit the billing of a referring laboratory for services when samples must be sent to another specialist. The licenses of health care professionals violating the provisions of this act may be subject to disciplinary action.

This act is similar to HB 1627 (2006).
