Firm vindicates patient's balance billing rights in case against San Bernardino County

October 21, 2010 -- In the first of multiple cases filed by PE&G challenging the practice of "balance billing" by hospitals and other health care providers (i.e., charging a patients for the balance of its bill over and above the amount the patient's health insurer deems reasonable), San Bernardino County has settled with the firm's client, agreeing to drop its $50,000 lawsuit against the client for a balance bill from Arrowhead Regional Medical Group (a County Hospital), and to pay the client's attorneys' fees.
