Texas fines Humana for out-of-network anesthesiology bills


The Texas Department of Insurance fined Humana $700,000 for putting patients at risk of high bills in Harris, Bexar and Travis counties.

As a result, customers couldn't get in-network anesthesia services at more than 20 hospitals and surgical centers, including eight Houston hospitals.

Humana insurance customers needing anesthesia at those hospitals had no option but higher bills.
