Prohibits owing a nonparticipating provider more than the in-network cost-sharing amount if the noncontracting individual health professional receives reimbursement for services provided to the enrollee/insured at a contracting health facility from the plan/insurer. Makes an exception from this prohibition if enrollee/insured provides written consent that satisfies specified criteria. Establishes an independent dispute resolution process to allow a noncontracting individual health professional who rendered services at a contracting health facility, or a plan/insurer, to appeal a claim payment dispute.
