Medical Costs Soar, Consumers Need Debt Assistance
LAS VEGAS MEDICAL DEBT ATTORNEY
Recent reports indicate that emergency room visits in Clark County, Nevada, and across the country are being charged at much higher rates than they were just a decade ago. These higher rates are creating problems for patients trying to service this debt afterwards. The increase in fees is being attributed to fees that are being tacked on by medical centers. These fees are usually charged to clients just for walking in the doors of an emergency room.
Sometimes insurance alone is not enough to cover the staggering costs of medical care. Though, patients are trying to be wiser and use in-network providers and have health insurance for the medical needs. Even with these precautions, a person may still receive medical bills in the hundreds and even thousands of dollars even after insurance has paid their share.
Las Vegas Shootings Medical Cost $600 Million

For instance, many of the victims from the Las Vegas Shooting are facing medical debt that not only can they not afford but it’s medical debt that none of them saw coming. According to Newsweek: The shooting will cost at least $600 million, Ted Miller, a researcher with the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation, tells Newsweek. Between the 58 killed and more than 500 injured, there are now many families in the Las Vegas area that are having to deal with the emergency room, hospital, ambulance, and medical care costs from the incident.
