Study of N.J. System Sheds Light On Federal Surprise Billing Fix With Chart: New Jersey Arbitration System Tends to Favor Providers

The study, published in the January issue of Health Affairs, found that New Jersey’s final-offer arbitration system “appears likely to increase health care costs relative to other surprise billing solutions and perversely incentivizes providers to inflate their charges over time,” the authors wrote.
