Compliance Implications of the No Surprises Act-Now and Next Year

The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021 was enacted on December 27, 2020, with aspects of the No Surprises Act portion enforced on January 1, 2022. It resulted in providers nationwide scrambling to identify and implement the necessary changes. Unfortunately, even as the year progresses, providers are putting their practices at risk by ignoring the part of the rule that applies to them. The rule is complex – aspects of it are in a transition stage and portions are being challenged by medical associations.

This does not mean that a provider can ignore the rules. Enforcement means penalty if the requirements are not followed. Unfortunately, presenters are providing incorrect information about the rule and making it more difficult for providers to fall into line with the requirements. We’ll help providers identify what portion of the law applies to them and immediately make changes to be compliant, provide real-time examples, and important forms to make the process compliant in the practice.

At the end of this program, the attendee will be able to:

    • Identify which portion of the complex regulation applies to their practice
    • Separate those patients for whom the portions of the law do not apply
    • Recognize the required elements of a Good Faith Estimate
    • Classify which categories of patients fall under required notice of Good Faith Estimate
    • Discover whether Balance Billing Protection applies to the provider’s category of practice
    • Formulate customized forms and training tools to meet regulatory guidelines
    • Adopt best practices and regulatory standards during the patient intake process
    • Anticipate the changes coming in 2023 to be ready to interact with pre-EOBs
