Oklahoma health system SSM Health has filed suit against Bright Health Group Inc. in federal court, alleging that it owed nearly $13.1 million for 2,541 unpaid claims incurred for services provided to its members, reports Fierce Healthcare. SSM said in the lawsuit that it has provided more than $15.6 million worth of services in total to Bright Health plan members across facilities in three regions. However, due to ongoing business challenges, Bright Health was under investigation by Oklahoma regulators and exited its Affordable Care Act exchange in December 2022.
