Only six states provide protection for balance billing ... FL, CA, CT, IL, MD, NY.|
12 states provide limited protection with hold harmless provisions. CO is one of them. These states still allow providers to send bills, and in CO, providers have sent bills where the patient may not understand the right to not pay the balance portion.
