Behzadi Law Has Recovered Millions Of Dollars For Clients Across Nevada Winning Personal Injury And Workers’ Compensation Claims

Settlement Agreement does not Disqualify Nevada Hospital Inpatients from 30% Statutory Discount under NRS 439B.260

Under NRS 439B.260, hospitals in Nevada must generally reduce charges by 30% to inpatients who have no health insurance “or other contractual agreement with a third party that provides health coverage for the charge.”  In Bielar v. Washoe Health Sys., 306 P.3d 360, 367, 22, 129 Nev. Adv. Rep. 49 (2013), the Nevada Supreme Court found that the statute did not disqualify a plaintiff from receiving the 30-percent statutory discount when, subsequent to the hospital stay, the plaintiff agreed to a settlement with the party causing the injuries necessitating the medical services, and the plaintiff thus received insurance proceeds as compensation for the injuries she suffered.
