  • Heading into a hearing on a landmark bill that would take patients out of the middle of negotiations over surprise emergency room bills, neither health insurers nor providers are happy.
    That’s not normally where a legislator pushing a bill wants to be before a hearing. But in this case, it may actually be the best indication that a compromise surprise billing fix — which would hold patients harmless when they wind up in an emergency room outside of their insurance company’s network through no fault of their own — may finally be at hand.

  • My niece recently sent me a photo of a new addition to her family room wall.

    Surrounding the map in a zigzagging manner she had clusters of white picture frames with the first couple already filled with snapshots from trips she had taken with her young son.

The 2018 Farm Bill also increased service fees and made other changes to the program, including service fee waivers for qualified military veterans interested in obtaining NAP coverage.
