Emergency Services Billing Rates - Code Rates

The Texas Department of Insurance (TDI) collects and reports information about billing rates for emergency service providers by procedure code as set by the political subdivisions. The procedure codes include Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) Codes and any other codes reported by the political subdivisions. This dataset lists the codes and the rates for residents of that political subdivision and for non-residents if that rate differs. There is a row for each procedure code and the rates set by a political subdivision. Political subdivisions with more than one code with a rate set will be listed in multiple rows. The data includes the year and quarter the information applies to as well as the date the political subdivision submitted their report.

The Texas Legislature amended <a href="https://statutes.capitol.texas.gov/Docs/IN/htm/IN.38.htm" target="_blank"><u>Texas Insurance Code Chapter 38</u></a> via <a href="https://capitol.texas.gov/tlodocs/88R/billtext/html/SB02476F.htm" target="_blank"><u>Senate Bill 2476</u></a> during the 88th session to add reporting “relating to consumer protections against certain medical and health care billing by emergency medical services providers. A political subdivision may submit to the department a rate set, controlled, or regulated by the political subdivision for emergency services.”
