ACEP Insists on Fair Coverage for all Emergency Patients
Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield has announced it will not pay for emergency visits in six states: Indiana, Georgia, Kentucky, Indiana, Missouri, New Hampshire and Ohio, based on secret lists of diagnoses (nearly 2,000 in Missouri from a list that ACEP obtained). Unless stopped, this policy could be implemented in more states, with additional health insurance companies following with policies of their own.  Visit for more information.
