(ANSA) - Milan, February 19 - Finance police reported 38 hospital directors in Varese to Milan's Audit Court on Friday, following an investigation that revealed 2.5 million euros in unpaid emergency room visit bills, ANSA sources said.
    The investigation looked at about 200,000 nonurgent code-white ER visits between 2003-2014. It revealed that about one in three patients didn't pay the required 25-euro fee for code-white visits, while other patients weren't assessed an additional surcharge required for using the ER for nonurgent medical exams.
