Ep. 94 The Trojan Horse of Surprise Billing Legislation

Daniel E. Choi, MD

Are out-of-network physicians deliberately trying to price-gouge patients in need of emergency care? Will “surprise billing legislation” solve the problems of narrow networks in a socially responsible manner? In this episode, Dr. Koka leads a conversation with our guest, Dr. Daniel E. Choi, on the topic of surprise billing legislation.

Dr. Choi obtained his MD degree from Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago, completed his residency training at Rutgers State Univeristy of New Jersey, and completed a combined neurosurgical and orthopedic fellowship in spine surgery at Harvard Medical School.
