End Surprise Medical Billing
Tell Congress to Adopt the Ruiz-Roe Framework
The price-setting 'solution' insurers are pushing is the wrong approach: it will impose artificial rates that will undermine patient access, weaken provider networks, force physician practice closures and increase consolidation. We are urging support for the Ruiz-Roe framework that addresses surprise billing in a balanced manner and encourages reasonable out-of-network billing and payment practices. It's already been proven at the state level to resolve disputes via an independent dispute resolution process that relies on independent data, stabilizes insurer premium growth, strengthens provider networks and - most important of all - preserves patient access to care.
