Rick explains the No Surprises Act. The legislation protects patients from surprise billing by prohibiting balance billing unless the patient is notified and consents and protects patients from cost-sharing obligations that exceed in-network amounts.
Rick and Andy focus their discussion on the impact on healthcare providers (facilities and providers that are out of network) and the act’s key provisions impacting their revenue stream.
