Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has signed a law that will require hospital-affiliated physicians to better disclose facilities fees they charge patients.
Attorney General George Jepsen lobbied for the measure, which requires doctors to provide patients with a written notice of the fee, the amount likely to be charged, and other information.
Jepsen’s office received nearly 80 complaints from patients who were surprised to receive a bill for a hospital facility fee after a visit to their doctor’s office, even when that office was miles away from the affiliated hospital.
