Protecting Consumers from Surprise Medical Bills | Community Service Society of New York
surprise out-of-network medical bills

All that changed in March 2014, when CSS, through the Health Care for All New York (HCFANY) coalition, successfully partnered with the New York State Department of Financial Services to craft the strongest consumer protection law in the nation to shield consumers from out-of-network surprise medical bills.

Holds consumers harmless from out-of-network emergency bills and non-emergency claims where an in-network provider isn’t available or proper disclosures about network status are not made.

wwltv.com | BuyER Beware: Patients fight surprise medical bills
“I call Ochsner; Ochsner says that's not from us,” Ricks said. “That's from another doctor's group. I said, 'Explain.' She said, 'Well, just because you were in Ochsner's emergency room, which is in my network, doesn't mean that the doctors are employees of Ochsner. Some of them are contract labor.” ...
A year ago, Lisa Ricks was rushed to Ochsner’s West Bank emergency room after accidentally stabbing herself in the eye with the end of a metal broomstick.

It was extremely painful, but she got expert care at her in-network hospital, paid a $200 copay and was back out at parades in time to enjoy Mardi Gras 2016. The eye patch she had to wear almost fit in with the zany Carnival costumes and soon her vision was back to normal.

She wasn’t blinded, but about nine months later, she was blindsided – by a $585 doctor’s bill.

“I call Ochsner; Ochsner says that's not from us,” Ricks said. “That's from another doctor's group. I said, 'Explain.' She said, 'Well, just because you were in Ochsner's emergency room, which is in my network, doesn't mean that the doctors are employees of Ochsner. Some of them are contract labor.”

Ricks sells supplemental medical insurance, so she knows the process. But she wasn’t prepared for something called “balance billing,” charges for uncovered services at in-network medical facilities. It’s a problem that’s getting more attention as more people with private insurance go on high-deductible health plans, forcing them to confront billing issues that used to be handled behind the scenes by insurance.

A recent survey by Yale University researchers published in the New England Journal of Medicine found that a whopping 22 percent of in-network hospital visits include some sort of out-of-network charge. Often, those bills come from independent physicians’ groups that provide anesthesiologists or other specialists to hospitals on a contract basis, to supplement in-house staff at emergency departments.

Illinois, Colorado, Texas, New York and Florida have managed to rein in this type of balance billing

The Early-Decision Racket - The Atlantic
2001! FALLOWS WAY AHEAD OF HIS TIME

In ED programs students start their senior year ready to choose the one college they would most like to attend, and having already taken their SATs. An early applicant is allowed to make only one ED application, and it is due in the beginning or the middle of November. The college has about a month to deliberate and responds by mid-December. If the answer is no, the student has two weeks to send out regular applications to schools on his or her backup list. If the answer is yes, the process is over, because by virtue of applying early, the student has promised to attend the college if accepted. How is this enforced? Mainly through counselors, who know when a student has been admitted ED and agree not to send official transcripts to other schools.

Hamilton College, in upstate New York, took 70 percent of the earlies and 43 percent of the regulars.

Masters: Patrick Reed's estranged family endures complex mix of emotions | Golf.com
"During a qualifying round prior to a tournament, according to sources close to the team, Reed hit a ball far into the rough. When he approached the spot, he found another ball sitting closer to the fairway, and was preparing to hit it when several of his teammates confronted him. Reed pleaded ignorance, but the other Georgia players were convinced he had been caught red-handed trying to cheat."

Masters: Patrick Reed's controversial past, high and lows | Golf.com
t accusations of Reed cheating and stealing from teammates. Reed denied the accusations in a Golf Channel interview, saying he was dismissed for alcohol violations.

More recently, at Bay Hill last month, Reed was looking for free relief after a shot into the bushes, but an official wouldn't grant one. "I guess my name needs to be Jordan Spieth, guys," he said to the gallery, which was picked up by a fan who was filming. While this seemed all in good fun, as Reed took a shot at his longtime Ryder Cup partner, it did radiate a touch of frustration.

Reed has been estranged from his parents and younger sister for years now.

The Unsolved Murder of the Sun Family in Harris County, Texas in January 2014
The Sun family’s brutal killing remains unsolved.

"Zhou stated that he had the family killed because Maoye, a former employee of the state-owned China National Petroleum Corporation, was privy to Zhou’s illegal dealings when Zhou was in the state oil industry in the 1990s. Also, Maoye reportedly managed Zhou’s assets in the United States and handled classified documents. This theory strikes me as both plausible and far-fetched. Officials have been quick to point out that Zhou’s involvement hasn’t been substantiated. Moreover, most of the media outlets that reported Zhou’s confession have a mixed record of accuracy."

Advance preparation key when starting your own business - News - Uticaod - Utica, NY
Talgo threw all caution into the wind when he gazed upon a rundown house on Varick Street one night, and then spent five years transforming it into the area’s first craft beer-centric bar, Nail Creek, in 2008. He did so again when he spotted a vacant space in Bagg’s Square West and persuaded Hardiman to quit his job managing a local restaurant to open The Tailor & The Cook in February 2012.

The Holland Patent natives, who have known each other since middle school, also recently bought the nearby 106 Genesee St., which will house office space and a loft the duo will be leasing soon, as well as a French artisan bakery they plan to open by summer 2014.
