Healthcare Happy Hour: Adding More Bills to the Hopper

The long-anticipated surprise medical billing legislation was introduced this week by members of the Senate Bipartisan Working Group, proposing a federal baseball-style arbitration model for insurers and providers to settle disputes, while taking the patient entirely out of the negotiation. On this week’s episode, NAHU’s John Greene and Chris Hartmann review the latest iteration of this legislation and how NAHU has been involved in helping to craft the language over the past several months. They also review the re-introduction of NAHU-supported legislation to restore the 40-hour workweek, the senate companion legislation to treat COBRA as creditable coverage for Medicare, and the House’s vote to rescind another piece of Trump Administration guidance.
