More than a quarter of all ground ambulance trips potentially resulted in a surprise bill due to out-of-network transportation services between 2014 and 2017, according to a new Health Affairs study, reports Fierce Healthcare. The analysis of commercial claims data found that 85% of the sample’s emergency ground transports were delivered out of network, as were 57% of nonemergency trips.
