Effective January 1, 2022, the federal No Surprises Act (NSA) requires providers to furnish good faith estimates (GFEs) to self-pay patients in specified circumstances. Unlike the NSA’s provisions prohibiting surprise billing for certain services furnished in specified facilities (i.e., hospitals, freestanding emergency departments, and ambulatory surgical centers), the GFE requirements apply to a much broader category of providers furnishing items or services for self-pay patients. PYA’s latest infographic lays out the workflow specific to the who, when, and what related to this new regulatory requirement.
