ACEP President Vidor Friedman, MD, FACEP, recently met with Sen. Bill Cassidy, MD (R-LA) and Sen. Todd Young (R-IN), two members of the Senate Bipartisan Price Transparency Workgroup, regarding their draft legislation on how to address out-of-network billing issues. The workgroup recently released a discussion draft of its legislation and requested feedback and input on how to best address this complex topic. Dr. Friedman and ACEP staff also met separately with the health staff of the senators in the workgroup for a more detailed discussion of ACEP’s positions on the draft legislation. On Oct. 10, ACEP submitted a letter providing feedback on the draft bill. ACEP’s letter is part of an ongoing conversation with this bipartisan workgroup that began in March 2018.
