Independent Groups Encouraged to Sign Specialty Coalition Surprise Billing Letter

December 02, 2019 6:10 PM | Sally Winkelman (Administrator)

A letter to Congressional leadership is circulating with an aim to obtain signatures from several hundred smaller and independent groups from various impacted specialties, providing maximal visual impact and local connections related to surprise billing.  The turn-around is very quick with a planned deadline to sign on by mid-day on Thursday, December 5.

Please share notice of this effort with as many smaller and independent groups as possible. The more sign on, the more compelling in its impact. Each specialty is defining "smaller group" for themselves, since there's such variation on relative group sizes across specialties. For EM, ACEP is requesting groups that serve 10 hospitals or less to sign-on, which is consistent with the EM smaller group letter that went to the Hill in early September.
