NAHU is leading a coalition effort to advance bipartisan legislation through Congress to end the practice of surprise medical billing and to implement a payment benchmark standard. On this week’s podcast, Katy Spangler from the Coalition Against Surprise Medical Billing joins NAHU’s Marcy M. Buckner and Chris Hartmann to discuss the ongoing legislative efforts to address surprise billing and how NAHU and the coalition are working to influence the process. They break down the nuances between arbitration and benchmarking, and what the outlook is for reaching a consensus among the several competing factions – both among stakeholders and policymakers.
