Bradley Partner Gene Besen Quoted in NBC 5 Responds on $50 COVID-19 Tests Costing Insurance Companies Thousands


Bradley attorney Gene Besen was quoted in NBC 5 Responds on how $50 COVID-19 tests in North Texas are costing insurance companies more than $10,000. Some are linking this to a loophole in the CARES Act, which states that insurance companies must waive cost-sharing payments for COVID-19 testing, and many private insurers that are waiving payments for related treatment.
