Senator Lamar Alexander on the LowerHealthCareCosts Act of 2019

Posted On: Jun 19, 2019   |   Posted By: FOX News

The Senate health committee has landed on a policy to ban surprise medical bills through a cap on the pay physicians, hospitals and air ambulances can collect for out-of-network care. The panel's chair, Sen. Lamar Alexander , formally introduced the policy Wednesday as part of a bipartisan legislative package aimed at lowering costs in hospitals and across the healthcare system. He is planning a committee vote on the legislation next week. On Tuesday, the committee held a hearing on the 165-page discussion draft of reforms, and there have been some tweaks in the final bill.
Senator Alexander sat down earlier with Guy Benson to discuss the bipartisan piece of legislation.
