On June 26, the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee approved the Lower Health Care Costs Act (S. 1895) by a bipartisan vote of 20-3. This bill seeks to address several cost-driver issues within our nation’s health care system including protecting patients from surprise medical billing and increasing transparency within health care. ABC, as part of the Partnership for Employer Sponsored Health Care, submitted a statement and comment letter to the HELP Committee ahead of the hearing and will continue to monitor any additional progress of this legislation in the Senate.
