The Biden Administration is attempting to help get patients out of the middle of an ongoing battle between medical insurers and medical providers.
Patients often get hit hard by surprise medical billing for procedures that require out-of-network care. The ban on surprise medical billing seeks to end these practices and help patients by introducing hired billing arbiters.
These billing arbiters will look at a variety of factors and decide the best rate for the patient. This should lead to lower overall costs for patients.
