Reporting And Data

A provider or facility must disclose to any participant, beneficiary, or enrollee in a group health plan or group or individual health insurance coverage to whom the provider or facility furnishes items and services information regarding federal and state (if applicable) balance billing protections and how to report violations. Providers or facilities must post this information prominently at the location of the facility, post it on a public website (if applicable) and provide it to the participant, beneficiary or enrollee in a timeframe and manner outlined in regulation.

Except in an emergency, written notice of all meetings must be given at least 3 working days before the meeting of a public body. The notice must include the time, place and location of the meeting, a list of the locations where the notice has been posted, the name & contact information for a designated person from whom a member of the public can request supporting material, and an agenda with a clear and complete statement of the topics to be considered during the meeting including a list describing the items on which action may be taken, and periods devoted to public comments by the general public.

Medical facilities must post prominently in the facility and their Internet website a statement of nondiscrimination as well as the contact information for how to file a complaint with the Division.

Beginning January 1, 2021, Hospitals must post a machine-readable file of their chargemasters including negotiated charges and cash discounts to their websites, along with a consumer-friendly display of shoppable services.

A medical facility that receives a star rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) shall post the most recent star rating assigned to the facility in a conspicuous place near each entrance to the facility that is regularly used by the public and, if the facility maintains an Internet website that is accessible to the public, on that Internet website.

Although many of these requirements apply to individual medical professionals and other types of hospitals and health care facilities, the information is presented solely to support Critical Access Hospitals. The reporting requirements and legal mandates on this site are not an exhaustive list and Nevada Rural Hospital Partners, Inc. bears no responsibility or liability for any hospitals' or providers' failure to comply with Federal or State laws or regulations.
