Illinois signs 2 dental payer reform bills into law

Illinois Gov. J. B. Pritzker recently signed into law two dental payer reform bills that will go into effect Jan. 1, 2024.

The first bill requires insurers to notify dentists that a network they are a part of is being leased out and allow them to opt out of the new network. The second bill prevents dentists from incurring virtual credit card fees to obtain payment for services. 

Both bills were backed by the Illinois State Dental Society, according to a June 14 news release.
