Many patients surprised by out-of-network medical bills

Even when Connecticut patients seek care at an in-network hospital, they may be faced with surprise out-of-network medical expenses. In fact, roughly 1 in 7 patients are surprised by medical bills, according to data on medical billing processes and practices. An analysis of more than 600,000 in-network inpatient admissions found that instances of at least one out-of-network claim ranged from nearly 2 percent of all admissions in Minnesota to nearly 27 percent in Florida.
