Wondering what the No Surprises Act means for your business?

You’re not alone.

The No Surprises Act, signed into law in December 2020, seeks to protect patients from surprise medical bills and prohibits balance billing of patients for certain out-of-network care. Compliance requirements are scheduled to take effect on January 1, 2022.

Published in October 2020, the Transparency in Coverage rule empowers consumers to compare costs between specific providers for any healthcare service, giving them better insight into the cost of services before they obtain care and receive a bill. Some transparency requirements are scheduled to take effect in January 2022; others are effective beginning January 2023 and 2024.
