David Esquivel Provides Insight on Whether Hospital's Use of Automated Call System Violated the TCPA

Becker's Hospital Review

Media Mentions

February 2, 2016

Bass, Berry & Sims attorney David Esquivel commented on the lawsuit filed against Prospect Medical Group's Southern California Hospital in Culver City. The complaint alleges that the hospital used an automated call system to contact a former patient in an attempt to collect a medical debt. According to David, "it appears the key issue in this case will be consent. Did the plaintiff provide her phone number to the hospital as part of the admissions process? If so, the hospital has a good argument she gave consent for this call." David also observed that "[t]his and other consumer regulatory issues are going to become more prominent for hospitals as they increasingly look to patients for payment."
