THE TRUTH HURTS, BUT LIES CAN KILL!
It’s time patients know the truth. Health insurance companies are increasingly denying coverage for your contractually covered emergency care. Every person is legally protected by the Prudent Layperson Standard, which states that YOU, not your insurance company, get to decide when and where you seek emergency care based on your symptoms.
The law is on your side. If you think you’re having a medical emergency and you go to the ER for treatment, your health insurance is legally, morally, and ethically obligated to cover your care.
Your legislators know this, and they have an opportunity to do something about it. Tell them you want your emergency care covered (the way it’s supposed to be).
