Senator Tate and Senator Foote, bill sponsors, presented Senate Bill 19-217. This bill creates a healthcare provider lien. A healthcare provider lien is a lien created by a healthcare provider for charges for medical care provided to a person injured by the negligence or wrongful act of another person. Before or at the time of the creation of a healthcare provider lien, a healthcare provider must advise the injured person of all available methods for payment of the healthcare providers charges for treating them and billing options. All future care may be billed to an insurance provider if the injured party or his or her lawyer notifies the healthcare provider that they have obtained health insurance. A healthcare lien cannot exceed the cost of the health services provided and may not include any surcharges, finance charges, or interest. A healthcare provider lien may be assigned to another person or entity and such assignment is not discoverable or admissible as evidence in any third-party civil claim.
