GA prompt-pay rule sparks legal fight

Georgia Health News, October 18, 2012

A legal fight about a Georgia health insurance law pits doctors against insurers in a case that could have reverberations nationwide. At issue is a 2011 state law that requires insurers to pay doctors promptly for treating patients in self-funded employer health plans. For years, Georgia has had this kind of prompt-pay law for regular insurance plans covering individuals and small businesses. But now that the requirement has been extended to self-funded employer plans—where the majority of Americans get their health coverage—opponents have taken their concerns to court.
