Healthcare Happy Hour: Don’t Be Surprised by this Week’s Topic

Surprise billing is continuing to receive a significant amount of attention from lawmakers, with last week’s House and Senate versions and this week's introduction of a comprehensive healthcare reform discussion draft that includes provisions to tackle the topic. On this week’s podcast, NAHU’s Marcy M. Buckner, John Greene and Chris Hartmann review how the conflicting recently introduced proposals may find consensus among Democrats and Republicans who are pushing to pass legislation by this summer. They also review NAHU’s meeting with HHS Secretary Alex Azar on prescription drugs, the latest hearing on single-payer healthcare, guidance on association health plans in the wake of a court ruling overturning the rule, and what to expect after the Memorial Day recess.

Here are instructions on subscribing to the podcast on iTunes and here's how to do it on Stitcher.
