CLOSING TODAY: Stop surprise medical bills, cut insurance premiums & the federal debt

This year in just about every Congressional district and state in America, someone opened their mailbox to find a surprise medical bill. Perhaps it was a surgery patient whose case included treatment from an out-of-network physician at an in-network hospital.
Or perhaps it was a heart attack victim who landed in the emergency room. There are many circumstances that can lead to a surprise bill, but they are all a symptom of a broken healthcare system with high costs and hard to understand coverage benefits. Sadly,
this phenomenon is all too common, with 16.5 percent of emergency room visits nationally in 2017 including out-of-network payment claims, according to a recent analysis by the Health Care Cost Institute. Unexpected medical charges can reach into the hundreds
of thousands of dollars, bringing great financial and emotional distress to families, often at some of the most vulnerable times in their lives.
