Lackey v. Dement

Court: WD Tx  07/18/2019  Magistrate Judge Grants Hospital's Motion to Quash Discovery Seeking Reimbursement Rates with Insurers in Personal Injury Case

A Magistrate Judge for the Western District of Texas granted a non-party hospital's motion to quash notice of deposition of its corporate representative concerning requests for testimony and documentation of the reimbursement rates contractually negotiated between the hospital and various insurers, holding that, under Fifth Circuit authority, such rates in a personal injury action were not relevant or proportionate to the needs of the case where the claimant was uninsured and the actual amount the claimant was billed was the best evidence of his past medical damages.
