On January 1, 2022, the federal No Surprises Act will become effective. The new law prohibits surprise billing for emergency services and non-emergency services furnished by an out-of-network provider in an in-network facility. It also establishes a specific process to determine the amounts owed by patients and payers.
PYA Principal Martie Ross and Senior Manager Kathy Reep will present on this topic at the New Mexico Hospital Association (NMHA) Annual Meeting. The session, “Complying With the No Surprises Act,” will provide a practical explanation of statutory and regulatory requirements and highlight immediate actions required for compliance. They will cover:
- The legislative history of the No Surprises Act.
- Provider and payer responsibilities under the new law.
- The specific actions necessary to comply with regulatory requirements.
The meeting will be in person September 29-30, 2021.
