According to New York’s Attorney General, dozens of sexual assault victims were improperly billed for the rape kits used to examine them upon arrival at the hospital. The Attorney General also said that he is reaching out to other hospitals to see if any other improper billing was taking place.

The Brooklyn hospital will be reimbursing the patients for their out of pocket expenses, in an agreement with the Attorney General’s office. New York state law states that hospitals must inform sexual assault victims that rape kits used can be billed to the state’s Office of Victim Services. (source) 2:54 p.m. ET November 28, 2017
