Envision Healthcare is a provider of healthcare services. The Company offers a range clinical solutions, including physician-led services, medical transportation, ambulatory services and post-acute services. The Company operates through three segments: physician services, medical transportation and ambulatory services. At all relevant times, EmCare Holdings, Inc. (“EmCare”) has been one of the Company’s primary operating subsidiaries.
Allegations Against Envision Healthcare
The Complaint alleges that, throughout the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) EmCare routinely arranged for patients who sought treatment at in-network facilities to be treated by out-of-network physicians; (ii) EmCare accordingly billed these patients at higher rates than if the patients had received treatment from in-network physicians; (iii) the Company’s statements attributing EmCare’s Class Period growth to other factors were therefore false and/or misleading; (iv) Envision’s EmCare revenues were likely to be unsustainable after the foregoing conduct came to light; and (v) as a result of the foregoing, Envision’s public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
On July 24, 2017, The New York Times reported that hospitals associated with Envision’s subsidiary EmCare were disproportionately likely to engage in “surprise billing,” in which patients who sought treatment at in-network facilities were treated by out-of-network physicians and subsequently billed at higher rates.
On this news, Envision’s share price fell $2.33, or 3.72%, to close at $60.28 on July 24, 2017.
