On January 1, 2022, the No Surprises Act (NSA) went into effect with a focus on protecting individuals from surprise billings for out-of-network services. A year later, we have now seen the impacts, including how federal and state governments are increasing enforcement, resulting in increased reprimands for organizations not abiding by the newly enacted law.
Foley partner Nick Welle, chair of the firm’s Health Benefits Practice, and associates Alexandra Shalom and Kara Sweet are hosting an informative CLE webinar on September 28, covering how the NSA has affected the health care industry a year after going into effect. This webinar will focus on:
- Where does the Federal Independent Dispute Resolution Process (IDR) stand now (challenges to IDR, delayed implementation, and over 300,000 disputes filed from April 2022 to March 2023),
- Trends and learnings from the NSA and parallel price transparency laws (the Hospital Price Transparency Requirements and the Transparency in Coverage Rule),
- Looking forward: CMS’ Request for Information on the NSA in the Proposed CY 2024 Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment System.
