Dear Speaker Pelosi, Leader McConnell, Leader McCarthy, and Leader Schumer:

The undersigned state and national medical societies, representing hundreds of thousands of frontline physicians, thank you for your continued efforts to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. As you know, this public health crisis is stressing physician practices more than any time in our country’s history. Unfortunately, despite the fragility of physician practices, some see an opportunity to include surprise medical billing provisions in the next COVID-19 relief package. America’s physicians strongly agree that it is critical to protect patients from surprise medical bills, and we firmly believe that a thoughtful, measured federal solution is possible to achieve. However, now is not the time to adopt divisive surprise billing legislation.
