Doctor Threatens to Send Marcus Smith II to Collection over Enormous Bill

Eagles first round pick Marcus Smith II stars in a NJHURT campaign video.

Marcus Smith II isn't totally invisible after all. The Eagles first round draft pick is featured in a new campaign video by NJHURT (NJ Healthcare Users for Reform & Transparency). Watch the clip above this post. Here's the summary they sent out.

A coalition in NJ is trying to get ahead of the curve with a growing national issue of the lack of transparency when it comes to out-of-pocket "surprise" health care bills. Heck, even People Magazine spotlighted a case in WI.

To help raise awareness of the issue on a broad level in the state, the group has tapped a few NY Giants and an Eagle to help spread the word. The approach is to take less of a political tone and more of a populous one with the hopes of eventually mobilizing the public.

Smith II hasn't made much of an impact for Philadelphia. He's only played 105 total snaps (defense and special teams) through 13 games.

I can only imagine how many people are going to make jokes about the 'doctor' (cute kid, by the way) saying "we need to keep you healthy and on the field."
