The Senate Health Committee held a hearing examining bipartisan legislation aimed at lowering the cost of health care. Witnesses agreed that the “Lower Health Care Costs Act” was the right approach in lowering premiums and drug prices, improving access to health care, and ensuring patients are not surprised by medical bills.

Other topics raised included modernizing telemedicine technology in rural areas, the increase in hospital closures, and the best way forward in handling payment disputes. close
