On April 2, 2015, a lawsuit was initiated by Plaintiff and Class Representative Eric Krobath against South Nassau Communities Hospital (“Hospital”) in the Supreme Court, Nassau County, on behalf of himself and the Hospital’s uninsured emergency room patients (“self-pay patients”), who were billed at the Hospital’s full gross charges (“Chargemaster rates”), and whose accounts were not written-off in full by the Hospital without resorting to any form of collection activity. A final settlement agreement was reached in October 2020.
The Settlement includes refunds from the Hospital to the Class, reductions of amounts owed to the Hospital, and policy changes for self-pay patients. For additional information about this class action, please see Notice of Class Settlement, which is available in English and Spanish.
