Class Action Against Renown Regional Medical Center

A Washoe District Court granted class action status to a lawsuit alleging an improper billing practice by Renown Regional Medical Center.

Attorney Patrick Leverty spoke with News 4’s Terri Hendry about the case. He said, “There is a law that says they have to seek to collect from the health insurance company first before commencing any time of collection efforts including filing liens.”

But he said that is not what happened to his client, Michael Wiley. Leverty said Renown refused to bill his client’s health insurance company when Wiley visited the Emergency Room following a motorcycle accident in 2011. Instead, he said the hospital filed a lien to collect full payment.
