Scott+Scott, Attorneys at Law, LLP ("Scott+Scott"), a national shareholder and consumer rights litigation firm, is investigating whether certain directors and officers of Envision Healthcare Corporation ("Envision" or the "Company") (NYSE: EVHC) breached their fiduciary duties to the Company and its shareholders. If you are an Envision shareholder, you are encouraged to contact Scott+Scott for additional information.

Operating under the brands of EmCare and others, Envision provides an array of healthcare-related services to consumers, hospitals, healthcare systems, health plans and local, state and national government entities. With nearly 16,000 affiliated physicians and other clinicians, EmCare is the nation's leading provider of integrated facility-based physician services.

On July 24, 2017, The New York Times published an article about EmCare titled, "The Company Behind Many Surprise Emergency Room Bills." Among other things, the article reported on a study by researchers at Yale University that found the rate of out-of-network doctor bills for customers jumped when the hospital outsourced care to EmCare. The rates of tests ordered and patients admitted from the E.R. into a hospital also rose and the use of the highest cost billing code increased. The added costs were often passed on directly to patients.
