ER doctors agree it's time to tackle surprise emergency room bills
There is a growing outcry on Capitol Hill over surprise emergency room bills — and now emergency room doctors themselves are rolling out a plan to do something about it. Here's the basic problem: As Vox and others have reported, in-network emergency rooms are often staffed by out-of-network doctors. This can lead to hefty bills for patients who think their providers are covered. As these surprise bills have gotten more media attention, both Sens. Maggie Hassan, D-N.H., and Bill Cassidy, R-La., have released bills to end surprise charges like that one. Now, the American College of Emergency Physicians is releasing its own six-point plan on how to tackle the issue.
