Consumer Reports urges support for the No Surprises Act and to extend these consumer protections to air ambulances

On July 25, 2019, Consumer Reports wrote to Chairman Scott, Ranking Member Foxx, and members of the House Education and Labor Committee to urge their support for the No Surprises Act (HR 3630, incorporated in HR 2328 as part of July 17 Energy and Commerce markup), which would protect patients across the country from surprise medical bills, to avoid enacting policy that could raise healthcare costs over time, and to extend these consumer protections to air ambulance billing. For over 80 years, Consumer Reports has worked with consumers for truth, transparency, and fairness in the marketplace. Surprise medical bills are symptomatic of the breakdown of those critical values in the healthcare system.
