Surprise Billing

Surprise medical bills are caused by narrow health insurance networks and this problem will only be solved through fair negotiation, not 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 on out-of-network medical bills. AAOS strongly opposes this effort amidst an unprecedented world health crisis. As Congress continues to consider relief packages, help us make sure they remained focused on providing support to physicians and your patients, not stripping you of your ability to negotiate with health insurers.
