This afternoon, the Federation of American Hospitals, along with five major hospital groups, sent a letter laying out principles for Congress to consider as it develops solutions to address surprise billing.
“No patient should be surprised by a medical bill. We are fully committed to working with Congress to protect our patients from the stress and financial burden of surprise bills,” said Chip Kahn, FAH President and CEO.
Joining the Federation on the letter were the American Hospital Association, America’s Essential Hospitals, Association of American Medical Colleges, Catholic Health Association of the United States and the Children’s Hospital Association.
