Modern Healthcare

President Donald Trump on Wednesday threw his support behind curbing balance billing practices, saying his administration has “stopped a lot” of industry pricing tactics already.

“We’re going to stop all of it, and it’s very important to me,” Trump said as cameras rolled during the portion of a roundtable discussion on healthcare with his top deputies and patients from around the country with stories of unexpected high medical costs.

Senators from both parties are currently working on legislation to stop insurers and hospitals from leaving patients to foot the bill for high and unexpected medical bills.
