No Surprises Act (NSA)As part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021, the No Surprises Act (NSA) outlines new patient protections from surprise medical bills and requirements for healthcare providers. When you get emergency care or are treated by an out-of-network provider at an in-network hospital or ambulatory surgical center, you are protected from balance billing. In these cases, you shouldn't be charged more than your plan's copayments, coinsurance and/or deductible. Read the full notice here.
Good Faith EstimateOn Oct. 7, the Departments published in the Federal Register Requirements Related to Surprise Billing; Part II (CMS-9908-IFC) (Interim Final Rule with Comment Period). Part II outlines the required GFE providers must create and share with uninsured and self-pay patients, creates a process for uninsured and self-pay patients to dispute provider charges, establishes the federal independent dispute resolution (IDR) process, and modifies existing external review requirements as part of payer oversight to incorporate provisions related to the NSA.
Providers must provide a GFE to an uninsured/self-pay individual who schedules an item or service no later than one business day after the item or service is scheduled, and at least three business days before the date the item or service is to be furnished. However, if the item or service is scheduled at least ten business days in advance, the provider must furnish the GFE within three business days of scheduling the service.
When an uninsured/self-pay individual requests a GFE of expected charges but has not scheduled the item or service, the treating provider must furnish a GFE to the individual within three business days of the request.
