SB 639: Medical Services: Credit or Loan (2019 - 2020)
Current law prohibits a healing arts licensee, as defined, or an employee or agent of that licensee from charging treatment or costs to a open-end credit or loan extended by a 3rd party that is arranged for or established in the licensee's office without first providing a specified written treatment plan, a specified written or electronic notice, and a specified list of which treatment and services are being charged. Current law provides that a person who willfully violates these provisions is subject to specified civil liability. This bill would also prohibit a licensee or employee or agent of that licensee from charging treatment or costs to an open-end credit or loan that is extended by a third party and that is arranged for, or established in, that licenses's office without providing that plan or list.
