To: Members of Congress
As one of over a million members of MomsRising, I am asking you to pass strong legislation to ban surprise medical bills and protect millions of families from economic insecurity and stress.
Surprise medical bills most often occur when someone receives treatment from a provider who is out-of-network during emergency care or receives care at an in-network facility by an out-of-network practitioner. These surprise bills occur across the health care settings and can cause financial catastrophe for families.
We need strong legislation that protects consumers and applies to all providers, holds down costs for patients, and applies to all insurance plans. Please stand on the side of families and take action to protect patients from surprise medical bills!
