Whether it’s a shocking bill for an ER doctor, a last-minute switch to an out-of-network anesthesiologist, or a bill that just doesn’t add up, consumers need protection and the tools to contest unfair or inaccurate bills. Patients shouldn’t get caught in the middle of reimbursement battles between doctors and insurance companies.
Join Consumers Union and other advocacy groups nationwide on Thursday, May 7th at 10am PT/12pm CT/1pm ET to talk about why consumers are getting surprise medical bills and what advocates – and consumers themselves – can do about it. We’ll fill each other in on what’s happening in different states, suggest steps consumers can take to avoid and fight surprise bills, and share opportunities for advocacy. Follow and participate in the chat with the hashtag #SurpriseMedBills.
See you on Twitter on May 7th!
