Consumer Reports urges House committee to protect consumers from surprise medical bills

Consumer Reports joined 12 other members of No Surprises: People Against Unfair Medical Bills, who represent patients, consumers, and workers, to thank the House Education and Labor and Ways and Means Committees for taking bipartisan action aimed at ensuring families will not have to go bankrupt if they have to go to the hospital or visit a doctor due to a surprise bill. In this letter, we urged the committees to act to swiftly and advance legislation that finally stops the harmful practice of surprise billing, protects consumers across all health plans and provider settings, and holds healthcare costs down.
