Ask Our Attorneys: How Payers and Providers Prep for the No Surprises Act


The No Surprises Act, also known as the NSA, goes into effect on January 1, 2022. Is your healthcare organization ready? Aimed at protecting patients from the costs associated with unanticipated out-of-network bills, the new legislation has implications for staff in numerous roles at payer and provider organizations.  

Because the No Surprises Act is new and many details are still being determined even now, there are plenty of questions from both payers and healthcare providers about its impacts and what it means for their organizations. For example: 

  • Which health plans does the law apply to?  
  • Do we have the resources in place to comply? 
  • What are the penalties for non-compliance? 

Tune in for a special on-demand Q&A with attorneys Lynne Rinehimer and Cynthia Gallee to receive guidance to help you comply. This informal discussion will shed light on details of the No Surprises Act, what it means for payers and healthcare providers, and actions you can take now to prepare.
