This webinar addressed the serious—and possibly growing—trend of surprise out-of-network medical bills. The webinar provided a background of what constitutes a surprise bill, a summary of effective state legislative solutions and legislative updates from advocates from several states that have targeted this widespread problem. Panelists also mechanisms for addressing consumer complaints and what actions advocates can take action now.
This was the second of our series of free monthly webinars on ways to decrease healthcare costs, increase quality—in short, pursuing better value in our healthcare system.
