EDPMA Files Amicus Brief in Support of TMA IV Lawsuit

On February 21, 2023, EDPMA filed an amicus brief in support of the lawsuit led by Texas Medical Association (TMA) that demands the Department of Health and Human Services, Department of Labor and the Department of Treasury (the Departments) reverse its 600% administrative fee increase for clinicians to participate in the Independent Dispute Resolution (IDR) process as intended by the No Surprises Act.  The dramatic, unprecedented increase in initial fees disproportionately affects providers, favors health plans, and will hurt patients.
