Rep Bellinos air ambulance legislation approved by House

first_img Categories: Bellino News 06Dec Rep. Bellino’s air ambulance legislation approved by House The Michigan House of Representatives today overwhelmingly approved air ambulance reform legislation authored by state Rep. Joe Bellino of Monroe.Bellino’s measure requires hospitals to transport patients via ground ambulances, rather than air ambulances, unless medically necessary. Patients sometimes are transported to hospitals by air ambulance without it being necessary and are eventually slammed with outrageous medical bills.“To protect patients from being hit hard with air ambulance bills costing in the tens of thousands of dollars, this bill stresses ground ambulance transportation over air,” said Bellino. “Too many patients have gone into debt because of air ambulance medical costs.”Air ambulance companies currently participate in “balance billing” where the patient’s health care provider will pay for a portion of the bill, but not its entirety. This leaves patients with medical bills in the tens of thousands of dollars.“In a case in which an air ambulance is requested, hospitals should order an air transport vehicle from a participating provider with the nonemergency patient’s health benefit plan to help avoid huge billing costs,” Bellino said. “I am happy my colleagues in the House voted in favor of protecting patients. I look forward to working with the Senate to further advance my measure.”House Bill 5217 now moves to the Senate for consideration.last_img read more

Rep Roberts ends third consecutive year in office with perfect voting record

first_img State Rep. Brett Roberts, of Charlotte, completed his third consecutive year in office with a 100 percent voting record, taking part in every roll call vote during the 2017 legislative session.“Our neighbors sent me to Lansing to represent them, and part of that is making sure that I consistently voice their opinions,” said Roberts. “There is no such thing as a day off when it comes to voting on behalf of the people of the 65th District.”Rep. Roberts maintained a perfect voting record in spite of many challenges including his son being born on the day he was sworn into office in January 2015, an unscheduled appendectomy in the middle of a session week in Spring 2016, and his tractor being struck by a vehicle hours before a House session in Winter 2016.“I’ve been humbled by the responsibility entrusted to me by the people in our district,” said Roberts. “Being able to represent our community is a great opportunity, and I will never take it for granted.” 18Dec Rep.
