Addressing high drug costs, improving public health and ensuring patients are protected from surprise bills are important goals and FAH will continue to work with Congress towards long-term, material solutions.
We appreciate Chairman Alexander and Ranking Member Murray including hospitals in the discussions leading up to this draft and we look forward to continuing to work with them.
We need to find a solution to surprise billing that protects patients, supports development of robust insurer networks and preserves market-based payment determination through negotiation or processes - like arbitration - to determine payment amounts for the services.
