Last week, President Trump outlined guiding principles for Congress to tackle surprise medical bills. He stated, “We’re going to hold insurance companies and hospitals totally accountable and we’re going to be announcing something, I think over the next two weeks, that’s going to bring transparency to all of it.” Since his announcement, both the House and the Senate have released legislation to tackle surprise medical bills. If passed in their Chambers, the bills would have to be reconciled before becoming law.
