Having health insurance and using in-network providers should be enough to keep you from getting unexpected medical bills. Unfortunately, a loophole in the law lets hospitals stick patients with ridiculous charges that they could never have reasonably expected.
This loophole doesn’t just hurt patients stuck with the bill; it drives up insurance premiums for everyone.

Cosponsor the End Surprise Billing Act!
Dear [Decision Maker],
I am writing to urge you to cosponsor the End Surprise Billing Act! Our nation's hospitals needs more pricing transparency and fairness, so constituents like me don't get stuck with unexpected, out-of-network charges that can cause real financial hardship.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
