The New York Attorney General announced a settlement with a health insurance company regarding overbilling  consumers.

The company charged its insureds improperly out-of-network rates for certain medical providers, including radiologists, pathologists, and anesthesiologists.  Many of the people faced debt-collection lawsuit as a result of overbilling.  The company was also required to  Diagnostic Center, Inc. (“NYMDC”), a New York City health care provider, agreed to cease its practice of balance billing.  When a health care provider “balance bills” a patient, it sends the patient a bill for any amount of its charge that an insurer did not cover—despite the fact that the provider is required to accept the insurer’s payment as payment in full.  New York Attorney General Settles Balance Billing and Overpayment Disputes    http://healthlawsidebar.com/?p=842
