Ohio ACEP is pleased to announce that the Ohio Senate included a surprise billing provision in their version of HB 166 that truly protects patients without putting providers at a disadvantage. The Senate version of the bill went on to pass the full chamber unanimously! The bill now goes to a conference committee where members of the House and Senate will decide on a final version of HB 166 to send to Governor DeWine. We need you to ask your legislators to support the Senate version of the budget bill's surprise billing provision.
