Discount on hospital bills for people who do not have health insurance

NRS 439.260 allows for people who do not have insurance to have their hospital bills reduced by 30%. This law makes sense because Insurance companies routinely pay a discounted amount to hospitals for services that their insured receive. For a person to be eligible for this discount they must not have an insurance at the time of the hospitalization. So even if they get insurance after they leave the hospital they can still qualify for this discount. Unfortunately, even a 30% discount is still going to be less than the typical discount an insurance company will get for one of its insured. However, this will still go a long way in helping to settle a case and to make sure that the client ends up with a good amount of money at the end of the case. When a case has settled or a Trial Award has been rendered, we then need to pay back the medical providers that the client has treated with. At our law firm making sure that our clients end up with as much as money as possible is our number one priority. To do this we try to negotiate the amounts owed to medical providers so that our clients pay the least amount possible so that they end up with more money in their pocket.
