Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center called on to refund controversial “late-night” fees to Emergency Room patients

Healthcare workers to demonstrate at annual BIDMC board meeting and launch public advocacy campaign for patient refund

After successfully prompting Beth Israel Deaconess-Needham to repay the government more than $569,000 for overbilling Medicare, the state’s largest healthcare union is now asking Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) to provide refunds to hundreds of patients who may have been hit with controversial “late-night”

Emergency Room fees for requiring care after 10 p.m.

EyeOnBI is launching a public advocacy campaign featuring radio, newspaper, and billboard advertisements asking the hospital to take action at their annual board meeting to refund the fees.
