A new coalition of conservative groups launched Wednesday to sink a bipartisan proposal in Congress to end the “surprise” medical bills some patients get.

The “Coalition Against Rate-Setting” will air ads against the proposal, which would ban providers from sending surprise bills and instead require insurers to pay them.

The conservative coalition, which includes fiscally conservative groups like the Taxpayers Protection Alliance (TPA) and Heritage Action for America, calls the proposal “rate-setting” that meddles in private health care decisions.

“This coalition is prepared to push back against ill-considered rate-setting proposals and educate lawmakers and the public on the perils of federal meddling in healthcare decisions,” said TPA President  David Williams.
