Officials in a Mid-Atlantic state say efforts to eliminate unnecessary medical tests may be going too far.

The Delaware Department of Insurance will hold a public meeting at 10 a.m. April 13 to discuss allegations by Delaware cardiologists and others who say insurers are routinely denying coverage for medically necessary tests.

“Where necessary, I will also contact the appropriate authorities regarding Medicare, ERISA plans and any other areas where we do not have jurisdiction, in order to make as certain as we can that our citizens are not at risk and their claims are paid in full and in a timely manner,” Delaware Insurance Commissioner Karen Weldin Stewart says in a statement about the meeting.
