State lawmakers want to see if they can do something about sky-high out-of-network air ambulance bills.
The National Conference of Insurance Legislators has started an Air Ambulance Task Force.
Kentucky state Rep. Jeff Greer, a Democrat, will be the chairman. The task force also will include lawmakers from Louisiana, New York, Ohio and Vermont.
The task force will hold a conference call meeting by mid-July, and it will meet in person at NCOIL’s summer meeting. NCOIL is set to meet in Chicago from July 13 through July 16.
NCOIL is a Manasquan, New Jersey-based group for state legislators with an interest in insurance-related issues.
