Health Insurance Coverage Loopholes (2 Responses)

Hi Will,

There is an article in today’s NY Times about people going to emergency rooms for treatment and then facing large bills because the treating physician was not a network member even though the hospital was listed in the provider network. Eastern Massachusetts scored dismally on this survey with over 40% of all patients getting stuck with surprise bills. I think it is grossly unfair to expect a person in an emergency situation to have to price shop for treatment. Is this being discussed in the legislature? Link to the article is provided below.

I appreciate all you do,
