AMA, AHA move to dismiss surprise billing rule lawsuit but hint at future moves

The American Hospital Association and American Medical Association dismissed their lawsuit challenging the Biden administration’s surprise billing rule but cautioned more litigation could be on the way. 

The two medical advocacy groups announced in a legal filing on Tuesday that the lawsuit challenging the rule was moot after a new final rule was released by the Biden administration last month. Even though the groups dismissed the lawsuit, they charged the newest regulation still favors insurers too much. 

The administration responded by issuing a new rule last month making changes to the arbitration process. It ditches the requirement that the arbiter place a heavy emphasis on the qualifying payment amount and instead calls for other factors to have more equal weight.
