No Surprises Act Interim Final Rules
Join ClearPath for the next Clear60 event, as we overview the newly issued (July 1, 2021) interim final rule to explain the provisions of the No Surprises Act that passed as part of the sweeping COVID-19 legislation in December 2020. This act is aimed at protecting consumers from excessive out-of-pocket costs resulting from surprise and balance medical billing.
There is no cost to attend this event. Seats limited to availability. Once registered, additional event details for the day of the event will be sent to you via email.
During this session, we will discuss:
- The requirement for group plans to treat emergency services as in-network, without pre-authorization, regardless of where provided.
- Patient cost-sharing requirements, such as co-insurance and deductible, that cannot be higher for out-of-network emergency and non-emergency services.
- Requirements related to the treatment of coinsurance or deductible as in-network.
- Issues associated with the treatment of ancillary care (like an anesthesiologist or assistant surgeon) as in-network.
- Notices that must be provided by health care providers and facilities before that provider can bill at the higher out-of-network rate.
