REVISER'S NOTE.

The regulation of the Director of the Department of Human Resources (now the Department of Health and Human Services) filed with the Secretary of State on December 31, 1991, LCB File No. R168-91, contains several provisions not included in NAC. Those provisions:

1. Require each major hospital to submit to the Department within 5 days after the beginning of each calendar quarter a complete charge master that was in effect on the first day of the quarter;

2. Describe the required contents of the charge master;

3. Prohibit a major hospital from charging a patient for an item that is not included on its charge master or its supplemental listing for miscellaneous items, and from charging a higher amount than the amount shown on the charge master, without the approval of the Director; and

4. Establish procedures regarding the approval and disapproval of billed charges for items not included in the supplemental listing for miscellaneous items.
