The Insurance Department and Department of Health will hold a joint hearing on out-of-network insurance coverage on October 7, 2008 in Albany.

The Insurance Department and Department of Health are considering statutory and regulatory changes to address issues related to out-of-network coverage and would like to receive input from consumers, health plans, providers and other interested parties.

The public hearing is scheduled as follows:

Date: Tuesday, October 7, 2008
