 HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED: 

Tell Congress to stand up to the insurance industry and demand they pay their fair share. Insurers, doctors, and hospitals all have a shared responsibility to provide high-quality care to patients across the country. It is time we fix the broken healthcare system and stop surprise medical billing.
