The No Surprises Act (NSA)
Webinar with Solvent Networks endorsed partner, PARA
Thursday, November 10 | 1:00-2:00 pm | Virtual
On Dec. 27, 2020, the No Surprises Act (NSA) was signed into law as part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021. Simply put, the NSA protects patients from surprise medical bills that come from unknowingly receiving care from out-of-network care providers. It also takes Price Transparency to a new level by requiring providers to present a good faith estimate to uninsured or self-pay patients. The NSA has been in effect for several months, yet many providers still have unanswered questions about what its interim final rules mean—and the steps they must take to comply with them. This presentation will attempt to answer many of those questions as we discuss what provisions are being enforced and what to expect later this year and into 2023.
• Learn which healthcare facilities/providers must comply with NSA regulations
• Discuss required NSA documents and timeframes for presenting these to patients
• Explore the NSA provisions that were not being enforced in 2022 and how to prepare for compliance in 2023
• Accounting and Finance Managers
• Compliance Managers
• Business Office Managers
• Clinic Providers
