Federal Government Sued Over Emergency Physician Reimbursement Policy

From JDSupra:

Emergency physicians have long alleged that health insurance companies are unfairly and inconsistently setting low out-of-network reimbursements for emergency care, and now they are imploring the federal government to do something about it. According to a complaint recently filed in federal court, an Affordable Care Act regulation related to emergency-care reimbursement fails to ensure reasonable payment to out-of-network providers. The case is American College Of Emergency Physicians v. Burwell et al. (case number 1:16-cv-00913), in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. The American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) is targeting a final rule issued jointly in November in 2015 by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the Department of Labor and the Department of the Treasury.
