Consumer Watchdog Attorneys at Hagens Berman Warn John Muir Patients of Potential Overbilling

Law firm says Bay Area patients of any John Muir hospital or emergency room may have been overbilled thousands of dollars for drug tests

SAN FRANCISCO – Attorneys at consumer-rights law firm Hagens Berman are warning Bay Area residents they may have been wrongfully charged thousands of dollars by John Muir Health hospitals or emergency rooms for drug tests for illicit drug use.

The unexpected charges for drug tests from John Muir Health amount to upwards of $6,000, according to attorneys. Even patients with insurance are left with huge co-pays and deductibles for services they did not request or consent to having performed.

Attorneys at the law firm say patients may have rights to their money back under consumer-protection laws.

If you received large and unexpected charges for a drug test after visiting a John Muir Health location, find out your rights to potential repayment.

Hagens Berman’s representation of consumers has earned it national recognition, and the firm has achieved more than $320 billion in settlements for its clients since its founding.

Your Patient Rights Against Billing Fraud

According to the firm, expensive and unexpected bills for drug tests may constitute fraud, and patients of John Muir hospitals may have consumer rights against these predatory billing practices.

Attorneys say all John Muir Health locations are under investigation, including Concord Medical Center, Walnut Creek Medical Center, Behavioral Health Center, San Ramon Regional Medical Center (Partner Hospital), Urgent Care Centers, Berkeley Urgent Care Center, Brentwood Urgent Care Center, Concord Urgent Care Center, San Ramon Urgent Care Center, Walnut Creek Urgent Care Center and Aspen Surgery Center.
