Show Me Your Bill

KABB-TV/WOAI-TV San Antonio, Texas – Sinclair Broadcast Group





WOAI committed a full year to investigating the ongoing impact of surprise medical billing in their community. Issuing one story a week during the station’s “Show Me Your Bill” segment, the investigative journalism team has helped viewers resolve their surprise medical bills with more than $750,000 returned or dropped by collectors. In addition, this initiative caught the attention of Rep. Lloyd Doggett (TX-35), chair of the U.S. House of Representatives Ways and Means Health Subcommittee and the first congressional author of legislation to protect patients from surprise medical bills.

Congressman Doggett changed his bill based on the station's reporting.
