Your Rights and Protections Against Surprise Medical Bills

When you receive emergency care or receive treatment by an out-of-network (OON) provider at an in-network hospital or ambulatory surgical center, you are protected from surprise billing or balance billing.What is “balance billing” (sometimes called “surprise billing”)?

When you see a doctor or other health care provider, you may owe certain out-of-pocket costs, such as a copayment, coinsurance, and/or a deductible. You may have other costs or be responsible for the entire bill if you see a provider or visit a health care facility that isn’t in your health plan’s network.

“Out-of-network” describes providers and facilities that do not have a contract with your health plan. Out-of-network providers may be permitted to bill you for the difference between what your plan agreed to pay and the full amount charged for a service. This is called “balance billing.” This amount is likely more than in-network costs for the same service and might not count toward your deductible and annual out-of-pocket limit.

“Surprise billing” is an unexpected balance bill. This can happen when you can’t control who is involved in your care—like when you have an emergency or when you schedule a visit at an in-network facility but are unexpectedly treated by an out-of-network provider.You are protected from balance billing for:

Emergency services

If you have an emergency medical condition and get emergency services from an out-of-network provider or facility, the most the provider or facility may bill you is your plan’s in-network cost-sharing amount (such as copayments and coinsurance). You can’t be balance billed for these emergency services. This includes services you may get after you are in stable condition, unless you give written consent and give up your protections not to be balance billed for these post-stabilization services.

The State of Texas also has protection offered for state regulated plans. If you have a state regulated plan, TDI or DOI should be listed on the card. This allows you to file a dispute with an arbitrator to resolve surprise billing issues. Additional information can be found at 

https://www.tdi.texas.gov/medical-billing/surprise-balance-billing.html or by calling the Consumer Help Line at 800-252-3439.


Certain services at an in-network hospital or ambulatory surgical center

When you receive services from an in-network hospital or ambulatory surgical center, certain providers there may be out-of-network. In these cases, the most a provider may bill you is your plan’s in-network cost-sharing amount. This applies to emergency medicine, anesthesia, pathology, radiology, laboratory, neonatology, assistant surgeon, hospitalist, or intensivist services. These providers can’t balance bill you and may not ask you to give up your protections not to be balance billed.

If you receive other services at these in-network facilities, out-of-network providers cannot balance bill you unless you give written consent and give up your protections.

You’re never required to give up your protections from balance billing. You also aren’t required to get care out-of-network. You can choose a provider or facility in your plan’s network.

When balance billing isn’t allowed, you also have the following protections:

You are only responsible for paying your share of the cost (copayments, coinsurance, and deductibles that you would pay if the provider or facility was in-network). Your health plan will pay out-of-network providers and facilities directly.

Your health plan generally must:

Cover emergency services without requiring you to get approval for services in advance (prior authorization).

Cover emergency services by out-of-network providers.

Base what you owe the provider or facility (cost-sharing) on what it would pay an in-network provider or facility and show that amount in your explanation of benefits.Count any amount you pay for emergency services or out-of-network services toward your deductible and out-of-pocket limit.

If you believe you’ve been wrongly billed or would like more information regarding your rights under federal law, you may contact the Department of Health and Humana Services at 1.800.985.3059 or visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises.

Consent to Christian Counseling Form

Our goal: Our goal in providing Christian counseling is to help you meet the challenges of life in a way that will help people overcome difficulties through Christian teachings and values.


Biblical basis: We believe that Bible/faith-based guidance provides thorough instruction for faith and life. Therefore, our counseling is based on scriptural principles rather than those of secular  psychiatry. Neither the pastoral counselors of Covington-McGee Christian Counseling are trained or licensed as psychiatrists  nor should they be expected to follow the methods of such specialists.


Not professional advice: When serving as counselors within Covington-McGee Christian Counseling, however, they do not provide the same kind of professional advice and services that they do in their professional capacities.


Therefore, if you have significant legal, financial, medical, or other technical questions, you should seek advice from an independent professional. Our pastoral counselors will be happy to cooperate with such advisors and help you to consider their counsel in the light of relevant 

scriptural principles.


Confidentiality: Confidentiality is an important aspect of the counseling process, and we will carefully guard the information you entrust to us. However, it may be necessary for us to share certain information with other counselors to address a particular problem and needs to seek advice from  within Covington-McGee Christian Counseling.


Please be assured that our counselors strongly prefer not to disclose personal information to others, and they will make every effort to help you find ways to resolve a problem as privately as possible.


Resolution of conflicts: On rare occasions, a conflict may develop between a counselor and a client/or patient.


In order to make sure that any such conflicts will be resolved in a biblically faithful manner, we require all of our client/or patient to agree that any dispute that arises with a counselor or within Covington-McGee Christian Counseling as a result of counseling will be settled by mediation and, if necessary, legally binding arbitration in accordance with the Rules of Procedure of the Covington-McGee Christian Counseling. Judgment upon an arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.


Agreement: By signing this consent, you agree that you will not attempt to subpoena or require any counselor to appear in any legal proceeding related to any matters discussed during counseling, nor will you attempt to subpoena any notes or records related to this counseling.


Having clarified the principles and policies of our counseling ministry, we welcome the opportunity to be a part of your healing journey and look forward to your success in reaching spiritual peace and happiness.
