“Billed vs. Paid” Controversy Across The Country

Haygood Howell, Nevada Insurance Law, Mills & Associates Nevada Insurance and Coverage Lawyers 702-240-6060In December, 2011, the Nevada Law Blogs addressed the question of whether the Nevada Supreme Court would limit Plaintiffs to presenting evidence of the amount that their medical providers accepted in full payment, rather than allowing Plaintiffs to present evidence of the much higher unadjusted bill.  See HERE.

The Nevada Supreme Court decision still has not come down.  Even so, discussions from other states regarding this topic have taken off.  For example, on Linked In, attorneys from the various states have been posting their state’s treatment of the issue.  Check out the discussion HERE.  It has been informative. NOTE: You must join this group (CLM) to see this discussion. It costs nothing and you can leave at any time.

We hope to hear from the Nevada Supreme Court soon.  Whatever the outcome, Mills & Associates will be sharing strategies on how to handle the new landscape when it becomes clear.
