    Victims of sexual assault are getting bills for rape kits from this hospital

    Victims of sexual assault have been getting bills from a North Carolina hospital.

    Cape Fear Valley Medical Center is charging victims for tests that could help find their attackers.

    State law requires the Victim Assistance Fund to pay those bills, but it also limits the amount hospitals can charge for services for doctors, nurses, hospital fees and other expenses.

    In a statement, the hospital said in May of last year, it changed the way it processes rape victims.

    Yet despite that change, some patients were still getting bills for rape kits as late as September and November of 2019.

    Either someone in the business end of the hospital or someone at an insurance company.

    I think, and anyone more knowledgeable feel free to correct me, but most medical billing is either processed by algorithms or by people typing codes into computers. Few human eyes are making connections between who is paying for what. Definitely a case of a squeaky wheel needing greased though.
