This case involves a hospital and their collection agency who is fraudulently seeking to collect the full retail rate for the medical treatment a patient received at the hospital even when a contract required the hospital to bill the patient's medical insurance company at a lower, negotiated rate. The federal district court for the Northern District of Ohio agreed with Murray & Murray that this case should remain in state court. This ruling prevents the hospital and its collection agency from using the court system to advance their agenda. Instead, because the hospital and the collection agency were using the state courts to collect from patients, they must remain in the same forum for this action. The case is pending in the Huron County Court of Common Pleas and is entitled Bellevue Hospital v. Peterson, Case No. CVH20110572.
