Balance Billing Protections
Thank you for choosing Augusta Health as your trusted healthcare provider.
Beginning January 1st 2021, new billing regulations were introduced in Virginia to protect you from being billed by a healthcare provider who is not in-network (or "covered by") your insurance plan, otherwise known as "out-of-network". This protection includes emergency services and some non-emergency services (such as anesthesiology, pathology, radiology, etc) billed by out-of-network healthcare providers for services received at an in-network hospital or other healthcare facility.
