Outsourced providers insurance doesn’t cover
DO NOT SIGN any forms if you are being seen in the Emergency Department. They outsource to a shady outfit called Emergency Physicians Integrated Care (EPIC) that your insurance company will not pay for even if this is an in network hospital for you. EPIC comes up with an outlandish amount owed. They refuse to send an itemized statement when asked. They send the alleged amount owed to a shady law firm they are in cahoots with that will shake you down. Because you signed forms with a tiny paragraph about the possibility of outsourced doctors, you are on the hook. Forms shoved in your face as you’re having a medical emergency & no one discloses this information to you. What a damn racket! EPIC is a bunch of shysters—St. Mark is no better.
