    The class-action lawsuit alleges that patients at hospitals across the country including Nashville General are being seriously overcharged for medical care by Team Health.

    Team Health is the Knoxville-based company hired by hospitals including Nashville General to run their emergency rooms and provide the doctors to staff them.

    Here in Nashville, we searched court records and found just last year, Team Health, through its subsidiary Southeastern Emergency Physicians, sued more than 700 patients who had been cared for at Nashville General.

    Team Health has run the ER at Nashville General since 2016.

    Team Health meanwhile says they've stopped suing patients from Nashville General for overdue bills.
