NBC Nightly News (5/9, story 7, 2:00, Holt) reported that “over a third of Americans say they’ve been hit with jaw-dropping medical bills they didn’t know were coming.”

NBC’s Olivia Sterns highlighted the case of a woman who “got a bill for $100,000” because a surgeon “had stopped taking her insurance, and while the hospital was in network, the anesthesiologist was not.” New York State Superintendent of Financial Services Benjamin Lawsky advised those receiving such bills, “They should fight it, and they should be loud, and they should contact their attorney general in their state and insurance regulator in their state.”
