‘Top Docs’ show on ‘surprise coverage gap’ now online
A recording of a recent Medical Association of Georgia (MAG) ‘Top Docs Radio’ show that featured two of the state’s leading advocates for ensuring that patients have access to fair health insurance coverage in emergency care settings is now available online.
Matthew Keadey, M.D., an emergency physician and the president-elect of the Georgia College of Emergency Physicians, and Mark Bernardy, M.D., a private practice general/interventional radiologist who is a member of the Georgia Radiological Society’s Board of Directors, discussed ways to put an end to the surprise coverage gap and balance billing, including model legislation that MAG and other physician advocacy organizations developed and are promoting.

MAG’s ‘Top Docs Radio’ show is supported with a grant from Health Care Research, a subsidiary of Alliant Health Solutions.
