Georgia state lawmakers are trying to figure out how to stop surprise medical billing.
It happened to Vicki Willard. She went to the emergency room to check on a heart issue.
“I was admitted to the hospital, in network, things went well,” Willard said.
Then, weeks later, she got something unexpected in the mail.
“After I’ve paid all my regular bills, I see a bill come across my desk for $700,” Willard said.
It turns out, one of the cardiologists who treated her was outside her insurance network.
