Editorial Note: This week’s podcast was recorded prior to the release of the health reimbursement arrangement final rule. NAHU will provide an in-depth discussion of the final rule on next week’s podcast episode.
Congress continued its round of hearings on surprise billing and single-payer healthcare this week, adding to the outsized attention that these two issues have generated already in this legislative session. On this week’s episode, NAHU’s Chris Hartmann and John Greene unpack this week’s hearings and the key takeaways as lawmakers seek to advance surprise billing legislation in the coming weeks and Democrats looks for common ground in a health reform strategy. The episode also includes a discussion of the newest coalition effort that was formed this week by NAHU and other key stakeholders to tackle the topic of surprise billing, as well as an update on the timeline for considering legislation to repeal the ACA’s Cadillac Tax and the Senate HELP Committee’s discussion draft that would require broker compensation disclosure.
