Ethan Taylo Files Class Action against Truman Medical Center for Billing Dispute

On July 3, 2012, Ethan Taylor was in a car crash that sent him into surgery at Truman Medical Center in Kansas City. He racked up more than $23,000 in medical bills that he assumed would be sent to Aetna, his health insurance carrier. But Truman refused to submit the bill to Taylor's insurance provider and instead went after Taylor personally, according to a new class action suit filed against Truman in Jackson County Circuit Court. He argues that hospitals are contractually obligated to submit those bills to patients' health insurance providers, but hospitals claim they are within their legal rights to assert those liens. In Burgess' case against Saint Luke's, the trial court originally ruled in favor of the hospital. But the Missouri Court of Appeals remanded the case, ruling that the plaintiff's contract with her health insurance provider extinguished her debt to the hospital, and that a lien cannot be asserted where there is no debt to be paid. That case is continuing to make its way through the courts.
