On-Demand Webinar: “PYA Perspectives: No Surprises Act—Government Enforcement and Potential Litigation”

PYA Principal Martie Ross was joined by attorneys from Robinson Bradshaw for “No Surprises Act: Government Enforcement and Potential Litigation.”

Martie covered the payer-provider independent dispute resolution process–negotiating payment rates for out-of-network services, as well as the patient-provider selected dispute resolution process–addressing inaccurate or incomplete good faith estimates of charges.

Robinson Bradshaw attorneys Kelly Koeninger, Travis Hinman, and Hana Crandall provided an overview of the landscape of billing claims against providers in the pre-No Surprises Act (NSA) world, including a discussion of plaintiffs’ typical legal theories in these cases and risks related to class certification. They discuss edthe NSA’s requirements and their thoughts on future enforcement, potential litigation, and areas of risk exposure under the act. Throughout the presentation, the attorneys provided practical observations for compliance and risk mitigation.

This webinar was the first in our “PYA Perspectives” series, in which experts from PYA and legal firms across the country join forces to provide clarity regarding the challenges healthcare providers face.

The complimentary one-hour webinar took place on May 11, 2022.
