NC Prudent Layperson Legislation N.C. Gen. Stat. § 58-3-176, 58-67-50(c) and 58-3-190 (1997) requires that coverage for emergency services must be provided to the extent necessary to screen and stabilize the person covered under the plan. If the emergency services are obtained from a hospital or other provider outside the managed care plan’s network, they must still be covered if a prudent layperson would have believed that a delay in seeking treatment would have worsened the emergency or if the patient went outside the plan network for emergency treatment for reasons beyond his or her control. The law also bans prior approval of emergency treatment if a prudent layperson acting reasonably would have believed an emergency existed. If prior approval has been given by the health benefit plan for emergency treatment, that approval cannot be retracted after the services have been rendered unless the provider or the patient materially misrepresented the patient’s condition. It requires that a managed care plan impose deductibles and copayments on emergency treatment equal to other treatment. The law states that managed care plans provide information to their enrollees on coverage of emergency medical services, the use of those services, cost-sharing provisions for emergency medical services, and accessibility and availability of those services.
