Coalition Against Surprise Medical Billing

Members of the Coalition Against Surprise Medical Billing, which represent accountable care providers, leading employer groups, and health insurance providers and the tens of millions of people they employ and serve each day, support meaningful solutions to end surprise medical billing that would:

  • Protect patients and families from surprise medical bills sent by out-of-network providers.
  • Maintain fair and equitable payments for providers with a benchmark standard based on local, competitive market-based rates.
  • Help reduce consumers’ health insurance premiums and taxpayers’ costs by avoiding an arbitration process that adds unnecessary cost, delay and bureaucracy to the health system and is particularly harmful for smaller companies.
