Text Search

Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

     58-17H-5.   Health carrier to provide emergency services coverage without requiring prior authorization--Standards for coverage of emergency services. If conducting utilization review or making a benefit determination for emergency services, a health carrier that provides benefits for services in an emergency department of a hospital shall comply with the provisions of §§ 58-17H-5 to 58-17H-13, inclusive. A health carrier shall cover emergency services necessary to screen and stabilize a covered person and may not require prior authorization of such services if a prudent layperson would have reasonably believed that an emergency medical condition existed even if the emergency services are provided on an out of-network basis. A health carrier shall cover emergency services whether the health care provider furnishing the services is a participating provider with respect to such services. If the emergency services are provided out-of-network, the services shall be covered without imposing any administrative requirement or limitation on coverage that is more restrictive than the requirements or limitations that apply to emergency services received from network providers. Emergency services are provided out-of-network by complying with the cost sharing requirements set forth in §§ 58-17H-7 to 58-17H-10, inclusive, and without regard to any other term or condition of coverage other than the exclusion of or coordination of benefits, an affiliation or waiting periods as permitted under section 2704 of the Public Health Service Act, as amended to January 1, 2011, or cost sharing requirements as set forth in §§ 58-17H-6 to 58-17H-10, inclusive. (SL 2012, ch 239, § 1 provides: "The provisions of chapter 219 of the 2011 Session Laws shall be deemed repealed if the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Pub. L. No. 111-148, 124 Stat. 119 (2010), as amended by the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010, Pub. L. No. 111-152, 124 Stat. 1029 (2010) is found to be unconstitutional in its entirety by a final decision of a federal court of competent jurisdiction and all appeals exhausted or time for appeals elapsed.")
