Insurance companies are forcing doctors and other providers out of their networks, leaving patients with few provider choices, especially during emergencies when they need coverage the most. At the same time, patients are still being charged more in premiums, higher deductibles and cost-sharing that ever before. This insurance coverage gap is leaving patients with hefty surprise medical bills for out-of-network care that they thought would be covered. Insurance companies are protecting their profits, not their patients.
