Cassidy Issues Statement on Surprise Medical Billing Executive Order

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA) issued the following statement regarding President Trump’s executive order on surprise medical billing:

“President Trump is right: Congress must pass legislation to end surprise medical bills. The solution to this problem is already before us. Last year, Sens. Hassan, Bennet and I introduced legislation to protect patients from surprise bills. Since then, I have worked with Chairman Alexander to come to a legislative agreement that is supported by a robust bipartisan, bicameral coalition. Congress should swiftly pass this bill to protect Americans from outrageous surprise medical bills,” Dr. Cassidy said.
