Pennsylvania patients shouldn’t suffer because of issues with insurance companies. Simply put, it’s about ensuring access to quality care.
Protecting patients from out-of-network health care billings must start with fixing the root cause of the problem – tiered and narrow health insurance provider networks and a lack of insurance product transparency. The Pennsylvania Medical Society (PAMED) supports solutions that address these issues.
PAMED believes that:
We participate in meetings and continue to support the PA Coalition for Patient Access – a coalition led by the Pennsylvania College of Emergency Physicians – to advance legislation and strengthen communications between stakeholders.
Next steps include:
PAMED will share any updates concerning out-of-network billing with our members.
Out-of-network billing – including related issues such as narrow networks – is one of PAMED’s advocacy priorities for 2019. Learn more about our advocacy priorities at www.pamedsoc.org/advocacy.
