Lawmakers call for oversight of No Surprises Act implementationPosted On: Apr. 25, 2023 10:20 AM CST
The No Surprises Act may have shielded patients from unexpected medical bills, but it's left a bureaucratic mess, with providers and insurers fighting over who'll cover the costs and Congress weighing whether to step back in, Axios reports. Almost a year and a half after it was enacted, the law is tied up in multiple court cases as providers push to change the process it set up to resolve billing disputes. Lawmakers in the House and Senate said they're planning to conduct oversight of the law, with Republicans focusing on how the Biden administration is implementing it.
