EDPMA and ACEP sent a 3/24/21 EDPMA/ACEP Joint Letter to the Biden Administration on No Surprises Act implementation.

Many important issues were left open for the Administration to address in the rule making phase. EDPMA and ACEP teamed up to ensure that the message from the emergency medicine community is loud, clear, consistent, and timely.
