Anthon, the Senate-side lawmaker sponsoring the bill, said nearly every family in Idaho has had to deal with the problem the Idaho Patient Act would address.
“Because the process is so convoluted, you actually have families taken to court before they even have a chance to sort out what they owe and what their insurance is going to cover,” he said.
Senate Majority Caucus Chair Kelly Anthon says, “And in many instances what you find is that by the time you’ve received that bill, you’ve already had to pay that hospital. Or, you’ve been taken to collections in the whole process. So, we’re trying to deal with a problem that is very real for Idahoans.”
