Auto Accident Patients at OhioHealth

News

An article in the Columbus Dispatch illuminates instances where OhioHealth has been pursuing payment of medical bills under the injured’s auto-insurance rather than hishealth insurance. Essentially, OhioHealth is skirting the discounted fees they negotiate with health companies, and instead charging the full or near full-rate to the injured individual.

The take-away I get from this article is that if you go to an OhioHealth Hospital for auto-accident injury, insist that OhioHealth submit your bill to your health insurance company rather than under your auto-insurance.
