Download our social media toolkit and tell your networks and lawmakers to end the surprise insurance gap.

Insurance companies are forcing doctors and other providers out of their networks, leaving patients with few provider choices, especially during emergencies when they need coverage the most. At the same time, patients are still being charged more in premiums, higher deductibles and cost-sharing that ever before. This insurance coverage gap is leaving patients with hefty surprise medical bills for out-of-network care that they thought would be covered. Insurance companies are protecting their profits, not their patients. Working together, doctors and patients can help lawmakers take patients out of the middle and promote a fair solution that will increase transparency, and effectively end surprise billing while ensuring long-term access to quality healthcare.
