Recently, ArMA President Susan Whitely sent a letter to US Senator Martha McSally reiterating ArMA’s support for surprise billing reform, specifically the application of an Independent Dispute Resolution process, which would use a neutral third party to resolve payment disputes. ArMA’s letter echoes the position taken by the AMA, which warns that other resolution mechanisms, including prescribing benchmark or median payment rates, will lead to large insurers having the ability to set payment rates and make it more difficult to maintain adequate provider networks.
