A class-action lawsuit that could involve thousands of Iowans has been filed against HealthPort Technologies.
The Georgia-based company is a medical records and billings statement provider. The suit alleges HealthPort overcharges costumers for duplications of their medical records and billing statements.
The lead attorney for the plaintiffs is James Bisconglia of the Des Moines law firm LaMarca & Landry. Bisconglia says that Iowa Code limits the amount a consumer can be charged for a records request.
