Virtual Event


On Thursday, December 16 at 1pm est, tune in for an overview of the surprise-billing ban included in the No Surprises Act provisions of the Consolidated Appropriations Act (CAA) of 2021 and regulations surrounding implementation of those provisions.

The surprise-billing ban holds patients harmless from surprise medical bills, including from air ambulance providers, by ensuring they are only responsible for their in-network cost-sharing amounts in both emergency situations and certain non-emergency situations where patients do not have the ability to choose an in-network provider.

Federal agencies have released two interim final rules regarding implementation of this law. The first IFR primarily deals with notices to consumers, post-stabilization services and how qualified payment amounts would be calculated. The second IFR mainly deals with the process to settle out-of-network payment disputes that will arise between providers and payers in addition to outlining requirements for healthcare cost estimates for uninsured individuals. This webinar will be a compilation of previous webinars on this topic, to serve as a single concise presentation on both Part I and Part II of these regulations.

 At the end of the presentation, NAHU Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Marcy M. Buckner will be available live to answer any and all questions you have!

Continuing Professional Credits (CPC) can be obtained by RHU®, ChHC® and REBC® graduates who attend for the full duration of this webinar.
