House Committee Releases New Surprise Medical Billing Legislation

Tue, February 11, 2020 10:12 AM | Babette Atkins (Administrator)

Late last week, the House Ways & Means Committee issued bipartisan legislation tackling surprise medical billing. The proposal, which is scheduled for markup on Feb. 12, would eliminate balance billing for emergent procedures. Conflicts would be resolved with an independent mediation process.

AAOS is reviewing the proposal and continues to advocate for a fair, accessible Independent Dispute Resolution process for resolving payment disputes.

Contact your congressional representative to voice your concerns.
