If you’ve ever received a medical bill that you weren’t expecting, you probably felt confused, worried – maybe even angry. And you’re not alone.
Surprise billing has become widespread and can have a huge impact on cancer patients and their families. It’s what happens when a patient who has insurance visits an in-network provider or facility, thinking they’re covered. But at some point during the visit, they see a doctor or get a lab test that is out-of-network – without even knowing it.
Then, weeks later, they get the bill – and it can total thousands of dollars that they weren’t expecting to pay for the care they received.
Surprise billing can be financially devastating. It is absolutely crucial that lawmakers take action to protect patients.
Right now, Congress is considering legislation that would protect patients from surprise medical bills without increasing their costs.
