President and CEO
American Hospital Association
December 12, 2019
America’s hospitals and health systems remain committed to protecting patients from unanticipated medical bills that they may incur because of gaps in their insurance coverage or as a result of emergencies. We appreciate that the House Ways and Means Committee has put forward a plan to address surprise medical billing that seeks to protect the patient and allow for providers and insurers to negotiate payment rates. We look forward to working with the Committee in the New Year as it addresses this important issue.
