How "surprise billing" is creating unwarranted healthcare debt for Georgians

Posted about 3 years ago by Julie Hannah

Hello members and followers.  If you don't know about Georgia Health News, check them out.  You will find a lot of pertinent information there, and reading it is free.  I think you will find this article very interesting:

Please contact representative Untermann, and representatives from your Georgia districts, to let them know that as an APRN, you are concerned for patients.  As the article argues, if reasonable restrictions were put on the use of out-of-network providers - without the patient's consent - and on the amount of money those providers can charge, perhaps we could prevent some of the crippling medical debt that plagues Georgia citizens.  If you get a response from your legislator, please post it in the comments!  - Julie Hannah, FNP-C
