We applaud the work President Joe Biden and his administration are doing to protect Americans from surprise medical bills. We are concerned, however, that patients and their families will not be fully protected under the administration’s implementation of the No Surprises Act because of a little-known, “shared savings” fee charged to employers by insurance companies. These hidden fees are associated with out-of-network medical claims that unnecessarily drive-up insurance costs for essential healthcare for patients and businesses alike.
