Assembly Panel Ok's Egan, Benson & Sumter Bill Requiring Health Insurers to Use Standard Explanation of Health Benefits Forms(TRENTON) - Legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Joseph Egan, Daniel Benson and Shavonda Sumter that would create a standard written explanation of benefits form to be used by all health insurance providers in New Jersey was advanced by the Assembly Financial Institutions and Insurance Committee on Monday.
The bill (A-2140) requires health insurance carriers issuing health benefits plans in New Jersey to provide a standardized written explanation of benefits form (commonly referred to as an EOB) to a covered person whenever a claim is generated under the covered person's health benefits plan.
"Using standard forms can help make confusing EOBs, which can vary in length and detail, more user friendly," said Egan (D-Middlesex/Somerset). "It is important that people be well-informed about their benefits, especially what services are covered since they would be footing the difference."
