CMS Releases New Rules for No Surprises Act
- November 16, 2021
CMS recently released Part II of an interim final rule (IFR) to the No Surprises Act (NSA) of 2020, providing more detailed implementation requirements for last year’s highly publicized surprise medical bill legislation. The IFR components provided to date will significantly impact providers, health plans, and patients in the area of out-of-network reimbursement as soon as January 2022. We believe it is critically important for physicians providing out-of-network (OON) services to prepare for the administrative and financial impacts of the IFR next year.
