Emergency Room doctors say insurance companies are gouging patients

From KBTX:

A group of Texas ER doctors and advocates rallied Tuesday in Austin to stop the rising costs of emergency room bills from health insurance companies.

The group says insurance companies are paying less for emergency care and are shifting the cost directly to patients.
Dr. Andy Wilson with CapRock ER in College Station, along with an advocacy group called StateEmergency.org, held the press conference to raise awareness about what they call a systematic attack on emergency care. They want legislative action to protect Texas patients from detrimental insurance billing practices.
Doctors claim the insurance companies are not providing an explanation or proof as to why bills are higher for patients.
