Surprise Billing

Surprise medical bills are caused by narrow health insurance networks. This problem will only be solved through incorporating a process for fair negotiation, not implementing insurer-dictated price-setting. Unfortunately, health insurers and their allies in Congress are attempting to use the COVID-19 pandemic to sneak through a federal benchmark for out-of-network medical bills. AAOS strongly opposes this effort amidst an unprecedented world health crisis. 

Help us make sure that Congress remains focused on providing support to physicians and your patients—not stripping you of your ability to negotiate with health insurers.
