ACEP to Sue Federal Government Over Health Insurer Billing Practices

From ACEP Now:

ACEP is currently finalizing the legal complaint against the federal government. After the complaint is filed in federal court, possibly as early as May, the process could take several months. Funding for the legal complaint and early stages of this litigation has been underwritten by the Emergency Medicine Action Fund.

“ACEP will never be able to match the enormous war chest that insurance companies have devoted to their efforts to lower reimbursement for emergency services and increase their profits,” Dr. Bettinger said. “But ACEP will never back down from our efforts to protect the specialty of emergency medicine and protect the safety net of medical care that Americans have come to depend on. “
