“Our healthcare community is grateful for Chairman Neal’s tireless leadership to resolve the issue of out-of-network billing.  Hospitals have long advocated that patients should be taken out of the middle when it comes to instances of surprise billing, and this approach accomplishes that goal in a fair and balanced manner. We thank Congressman Neal for his persistence throughout this process and for not being pushed to accept anything less than our patients and providers deserve.”
