No Surprises Coalition Letter to Committee Leadership
Undersigned members of No Surprises: People Against Unfair Medical Bills sent this letter to committee leaders on Capitol Hill who are negotiating a deal to address surprise medical bills. As the committees come together to negotiate a final bill, we urge them to place the needs of families before health care special interest groups and swiftly act to finalize and advance compromise legislation that finally stops the heinous practice of surprise billing, protects consumers across all health plans and provider settings, and holds health care costs down. Specific recommendations: include a fair, market-based benchmark payment; address air ambulance; insure robust guardrails around any arbitration, and require private equity transparency.
