Comments to CMS about Requirements Related to Surprise Billing

November 29, 2021

Dear Administrator Brooks-LaSure:

"On behalf of the Endocrine Society, thank you for the opportunity to provide comments on the Interim Final Rule with Comment Period (IFC): Requirements Related to Surprise Billing; Part II (CMS-9908-IFC). Founded in 1916, the Endocrine Society represents approximately 18,000 physicians and scientists engaged in the treatment and research of endocrine disorders, such as diabetes, hypertension, infertility, obesity, osteoporosis, endocrine cancers (i.e., thyroid, adrenal, ovarian, pituitary) and thyroid disease. The Endocrine Society supports the agency’s efforts to empower patients by providing them with good faith estimates (GFE) that detail the costs of their care; however, we believe this information must be delivered in a way that is meaningful to the patient, does not inadvertently limit patient access, and does not increase the administrative burden on the provider."
