Oregon Revives Bill to Crack Down on Regence BCBS Payments to ASCs

Oregon’s House of Representatives has revived a measure that will prevent abusive payment practices to ASCs by Regence BlueCross BlueShield, according to The Lund Report.

The measure, called the rider amendment, was tacked onto Senate Bill 724, which passed a House vote last week. It will address Regence’s practice of sending medical payment checks without paperwork to policy holders rather than sending them to the ASC for out-of-network service payments, according to the report.

The rider amendment would see to it that insurance companies bill center directly or send policy holders checks that require a surgery center manager’s signature prior to being cashed.
