Indiana board sets no fees for certain hospital errors
Fort Wayne Journal-Gazette, March 13, 2008
The Indiana Hospital Association board states that hospitals shouldn't seek payment for medical costs associated with 12 adverse events. Those events include death or serious disability associated with a medication error and surgery performed on the wrong body part. With the new billing policy, Indiana is one of only 11 states where hospitals have agreed formally to waive fees for certain errors or "never events".
