PYA Principal Martie Ross will give two presentations at the Nebraska Hospital Association Annual Convention. She will provide insight on changing regulations as the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE) ends, as well as specific provisions within the No Surprises Act.
The end of the COVID-19 PHE also means the contraction of expanded telehealth coverage. In addition to detailing what services will remain covered for how long and under what conditions, Martie’s presentation, “Post-PHE Telehealth and Virtual Services,” will explain how providers can use virtual services to fill the gaps left by the telehealth rollback. Following the presentation, attendees will be able to:
- Understand the impact of the end of the PHE on the availability of telehealth services.
- Describe state and federal efforts to expand telehealth services.
- Appreciate the opportunities presented by new reimbursement for virtual services.
Martie’s second presentation will address the federal No Surprises Act’s prohibition on surprise billing, and also will cover such topics as notice requirements, anticipated regulations, relevant agency guidance, and lessons learned thus far. In “Navigating the No Surprises Act,” she will:
- Review the No Surprises Act’s prohibition on surprise billing and the related dispute resolution process.
- Analyze when and how to generate a good faith estimate of charges for self-pay patients.
- Outline the industry’s experience with the No Surprises Act in the 10 months since the law became effective.
The convention takes place October 19-21, 2022, in La Vista, Nebraska. Learn more and register here.
