Doctors Sue Anthem over ER Coverage

The Medical Association of Georgia (MAG) and the American College of Emergency Physicians have sued Blue Cross Blue shield of Georgia (BCBSGA) over Anthem’s policy of denying payment for emergency department visits that are later deemed non-emergent. The plaintiffs allege that the policy violates the ACA, which requires insurers to cover emergency care based on a patient’s symptoms rather than their final diagnosis. HealthLeaders Media
