Dems & Repubs Fight To KEEP Surprise Medical Bills



Some Congressional Democrats are siding with their Republican colleagues to undermine the Biden Administration’s No Surprises Act, which bans surprise medical bills and could lead to standardized rates under private insurance plans in the future. Lobby groups like the American Hospital Association and the American Medical Association as well as private insurers have fought against the provisions passing and seem to be gaining more congressional support.

A key provision in the law could become a first step toward allowing the federal government to standardize rates for medical procedures covered under private insurance plans, an objective the private health care industry has fought for decades. Late last year, in the months leading up to the bill’s enactment, opponents filed a flurry of lawsuits claiming that by enforcing the rule in a manner widely viewed as consistent with the text of the legislation, the Biden administration had overstepped Congress’s intentions. The leading opponents of the provision, which mandates that insurers and health care providers settle billing disputes based primarily on the median in-network rate for a procedure, are organizations representing the private health care industry, like the American Hospital Association and the American Medical Association. Along with a number of health care providers, the groups have filed lawsuits that federal courts are expected to decide in the coming months, before the first round of disputes under the new law reaches the arbitration stage." *** The largest online progressive news show in the world.
