State Justices Deal Blow to Health InsurersPDF
Andrew Selesnick was quoted in the article, "State Justices Deal Blow to Health Insurers," published in The Recorder on November 15, 2016. The article pertains to the California Supreme Court's recent ruling (a major victory for emergency medical providers) that health plans can be sued for negligence if they pass financial risk to risk bearing organizations (RBOs) that they know are in danger of becoming insolvent. Mr. Selesnick, who represented the physician groups before the state's high court, commented that the ruling "provides accountability on behalf of the payers. If they're taking the patients' premium dollars and promising to cover certain services … they don't get to do so without making sure those other entities can actually pay their bills."
