FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): The Indiana Supreme Court will not take up a contested Parkview case.
In early September, Parkview Hospital argued they shouldn’t have to release information like discounts provided to insured patients, according to the Journal Gazette. This was after a patient, Thomas Frost, said his bill after an injury was unreasonable, and the hospital didn’t disclose discounts were available to him because he didn’t have insurance.
A lower court agreed with Frost. A 3-2 vote from the Indiana Supreme Court said they will not take up the case and will defer to the Indiana Court of Appeals.
A billing expert testified that Frost’s bill should have been about a third of what he was charged. At the time he says the bill was around $625,000 after a motorcycle accident.
