Unsure of what the 'No Surprise Act' means for you?

May 4, 2022 11:30:00 AM / by Practice Support Team

The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021 established several new requirements for providers, facilities, and providers of air ambulance services to protect consumers from surprise medical bills. These requirements are collectively referred to as “No Surprises” rules and apply to all providers.

No Surprise

The requirements are generally divided into Balance Billing Requirements (applies to services provided at a facility) and Good Faith Estimate requirements (applies to all places of service - including physician offices). 

These requirements don’t apply to people with coverage through programs like Medicare, Medicaid, Indian Health Services, Veterans Affairs Health Care, or TRICARE. These programs have other protections against high medical bills.

This legislation took effect on January 1, 2022.

The links below give you all the necessary information, links, forms and templates in order to take the necessary actions to be compliant.
