No Surprises Act (11/15/22)

Presented by Barbara Johnson, Senior Revenue Cycle Consultant, ParaRev

On Dec. 27, 2020, the No Surprises Act (NSA) was signed into law as part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021. The NSA protects patients from surprise medical bills that come from unknowingly receiving care from out-of-network care providers. It also takes Price Transparency to a new level by requiring providers to present a good faith estimate to uninsured or self-pay patients. The NSA has been in effect for several months, yet many providers still have unanswered questions about what its interim final rules mean and the steps they must take to comply with them.
