MGMA to Congress: Hold insurers accountable for surprise medical bills

06/12/2019 4:48 PM | Rebekah Francis (Administrator)

MGMA submitted feedback last week on the Lower Health Care Costs Act, a legislative draft proposed by the U.S. Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee. The draft bill outlined potential solutions for addressing unexpected or “surprise” medical bills, improving transparency, and lowering drug costs.

The Association recommended an approach to unexpected medical bills that holds insurers accountable for narrow and inflexible networks and protects patients from unexpected healthcare costs that their insurance will not cover.
