In this episode of the Diagnosing Health Care Podcast: On December 27, 2020, President Trump signed into law the No Surprises Act as part of the $2.3 billion Consolidated Appropriations Act. Recently, the Biden administration issued its first interim final rule in order to implement this act, which will go into effect on January 1, 2022. While the goal is to protect patients from surprise billing, the law will also impose significant compliance burdens on plans, providers, and facilities.
Epstein Becker Green attorneys Helaine Fingold, Bob Hearn, and Alexis Boaz discuss the key areas health care companies need to keep in mind as they prepare to comply with the No Surprises Act.
