Colson Hicks Eidson Client Dr. Edwin Gould Takes a Lead Role in the Fight Against the Coronavirus Pandemic
Dr. Edwin Gould, a pathologist, and Colson Hicks Eidson client for over 16 years is leading the charge in developing testing for the novel Coronavirus. The Miami Herald reported in a story which may be found here, that Dr. Gould received federal approval for Coronavirus test that will allow Miami’s largest not-for-profit hospital system to turnaround Coronavirus tests in less than 24 hours. Dr. Gould is the Medical Director of the Baptist Hospital pathology lab.
“I’m proud to say I represent Dr. Gould and his group of dedicated pathologists. Pathologists serve a critical role in the diagnosis of the Coronavirus, among other diseases, illnesses and cancers. It does not surprise me that Dr. Gould has developed this test and is on the cutting edge of medicine in this country,” said Colson Hicks Eidson partner Patrick Montoya. Montoya has represented Dr. Gould and numerous other pathology groups in litigation against large health insurance companies that have not paid or underpaid for the doctors’ valuable pathology services rendered to the health insurance companies’ insureds. Montoya continued, “Dr. Gould’s work serves to highlight that health insurance companies should not get away with not paying for their insured’s pathology services. It is shameful, and even more so in the time of this pandemic, that doctors are not being adequately paid for the medically necessary services they provide. I look forward to bringing the cases I have for Dr. Gould to a successful resolution. Rest assured we will continue to fight for our physician clients to be fairly paid by health insurance companies who are recording record profits on the backs of physicians.”
