This two-part webinar series will discuss the immediate obligations for hospitals and other providers of the No Surprises Act (NSA) that were effective Jan. 1, 2022.
Some of the immediate obligations for hospitals include:
1) notice and consent requirements for when care is provided by out-of-network clinicians at in-network facilities;
2) rules pertaining to emergency services and post-stabilization care at hospitals or freestanding emergency departments; and
3) obligations to provide good faith estimates for self-pay and uninsured patients. This presentation will also include a discussion of recent guidance since Jan. 1, 2022 by federal agencies on implementation of the NSA for healthcare providers, as well as operational challenges and strategies for meeting the compliance obligations of the NSA.
At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:
- Identify and address the steps of the NSA compliance obligations that were effective Jan. 1, 2022 and the impact of guidance by federal agencies issued since Jan. 1, 2022; and
- Identify hospital operational areas impacted by the NSA, and practical strategies to address the applicable requirements.
