Healthcare groups react to House surprise billing proposal
By Admin | May 30, 2019
The outline of a forthcoming House proposal to end surprise medical bills has drawn mixed reactions from healthcare groups.
Here are four:
1. American Medical Association President-elect Patrice A. Harris, MD:
"The American Medical Association commends Reps. Raul Ruiz, MD, Phil Roe, MD, and the other co-sponsors of the Protecting People from Surprise Medical Bills Act for their efforts to address the impact that unanticipated medical bills can have on families. The outline released today represents a common-sense approach that protects patients from out-of-network bills that their insurance companies won't pay while providing for a fair process to resolve disputes between physicians and hospitals and insurers. We look forward to working with these members as further details emerge."
