Identify Key NSBA Provisions That Affect Medical Practices Of All Sizes And Specialties

The No Surprise Billing Act (NSBA) was created to protect consumers from receiving surprise medical bills from out-of-network providers at in-network facilities. The No Surprise Billing Act has completely transformed the managed care health insurance payer contracting landscape resulting in a dramatic shift in payer behavior. Many health insurers are now forcing more providers into out-of-network status in an effort to reduce their payments through the host of consumer protections created in the NSBA. More out-of-network providers results in more out-of-network payment disputes, which allows the insurer to get out of paying providers in a timely manner and ties up provider time and increases administrative costs and burden to collect reimbursement. There have been many recent legal challenges in 2023 that have further complicated the NSBA requirements.

The NSBA applies to not only people covered under group and individual health insurance plans, but also protects uninsured and self-pay patients. The NSBA rule requires a whole new host of compliance considerations for healthcare organizations to work through to ensure compliance with federal law. These new requirements include providing good faith estimates to patients prior to receiving services, ensuring fees are reasonable and customary within the respective medical market, and participating in payment disputes via the new independent dispute resolution (IDR) process. This webinar will drill down into the NSBA provisions extensively, discuss the role of good faith estimates, explain the IDR process, discuss recent legal challenges, and provide you with tangible information that can be put into action immediately.
