Maurice Wutscher’s Shannon Miller Takes a Closer Look at Medical Debt and How It Is Being Regulated in Westlaw Today

Shannon Miller

Jan. 17, 2023 — Maurice Wutscher attorney Shannon P. Miller has published an article, “Regulating medical debt collection: A 2022 review and look ahead,” on Thomson Reuters Westlaw Today.

In the article, Mr. Miller discusses the record amounts of medical debt created by the COVID-19 pandemic. That coupled with “flaws in how medical services are billed and what understanding consumers have of their financial responsibility for these services” led to more regulatory activity of medical debt in 2022.

“Last year saw an influx of federal and state regulation aimed at what information must be conveyed to consumers in anticipation of the provision of medical services as well as restrictions on the collection of medical debt. Expect more activity in 2023,” he writes.
