South Carolina high court rules on hospital insurance
The State, March 11, 2008
The South Carolina Supreme Court has ruled that state law does not guarantee uninsured hospital patients the same discounts offered insured patients. The court overturned a decision that had said a loophole in state law gave all patients the same discounts through 2004. These discounts could shave 50 percent or more off a typical hospital bill, said the attorney representing uninsured patients before the Supreme Court.
