No Surprises Act: New Rules and Guidance for Stakeholders (Part 1) – Diagnosing Health Care [VIDEO]
In this episode of the Diagnosing Health Care Podcast: The No Surprises Act (NSA) will go into effect on January 1, 2022. Since our last episode on the topic, the federal government has issued additional interim final rules and guidance to implement the NSA, including the second interim final rule. In addition to describing how the NSA interacts with the plan external review procedures, the second interim final rule describes the independent dispute resolution (IDR) process and how the IDR’s determination is made.
Attorneys Helaine Fingold, Lesley Yeung, and Alexis Boaz dive into how these changes impact entities subject to the NSA’s balance billing prohibitions.
