Navigating the No Surprises Act: Your Guide to Requirements, Challenges & Compliance

What New Obligations Does the No Surprises Act Impose on Health Systems and Health Plans—and How Can You Prepare for the Impact? Learn the Answer at a New Manatt Webinar. 

The No Surprises Act (NSA)—set to take effect January 1, 2022—is intended to protect patients from surprise medical bills. The NSA, however, also imposes major new obligations that will significantly impact health care provider and health plan operations. To be sure they are prepared for the NSA, it’s critical that providers and plans start now to understand the new regulations, implement the necessary operational changes and ensure compliance. Falling short can mean substantial civil monetary penalties for plans and providers.

A new Manatt webinar will give you a clear guide to navigating the complexities of the NSA—and make sure your organization is fully prepared for its impact. The program will:

  • Detail the new protections and requirements included in Part 1 of the Interim Final Rule published in July—and the additional obligations likely to come in later rules
  • Explain how patient cost sharing must now be calculated—and the complex new mechanism for setting out-of-network rates
  • Discuss the new definition of “emergency services” to which the surprise billing protections apply, which now include post-stabilization services
  • Explore how NSA requirements interact with newly effective federal price transparency regulations and existing state law
  • Identify ways to operationalize and implement required new processes and workflows
  • Ensure your organization is ready for the significant operational and revenue impacts to come
