There's a new study from Yale that says some emergency room visits can lead to huge unexpected medical bills.

Researchers looked at insurance data on 2.2 million ER visits in 2015 and 2015.

They found that roughly a quarter of patients were treated by out of network doctors, even when patients went to emergency departments within their health insurance networks.
