    25 MAR 2024 · The Air Ambulance Controversy with Steve Tipton This week, Ryan Hathcock of Chartwell Law and Steve Armstrong of Armstrong and Peake PLLC are joined by Steve Tipton of Flahive, Ogden & Latson to discuss the air ambulance billing controversy, and how the Airline Deregulation Act from the 1970s affects workers' compensation billing for air ambulance providers.   Steve Tipton has been defending employers and insurers for many years on these claims.  This is a rare situation where employers’ and plaintiffs’ interests may align. He discusses the arc of these claims with recent Federal litigation. Air ambulance providers argue that workers' compensation fee schedules do not apply and that they can charge their market rates. Employers and insurers argue that workers' compensation laws should apply and that they should be able to charge their reasonable and customary rate, and that air ambulance fees should be reigned in.
