The IRS, the Dept. of Labor and the Dept. of Health and Human Services have issued interim final regulations about “surprise medical bills.” The regulations have been issued to implement the No Surprises Act, which was part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act. They detail the federal arbitration process that providers, facilities, or providers of air ambulance services, and health plans or issuers will use to determine final payment beyond allowable patient cost-sharing for certain out-of-network healthcare services in situations where the law prohibits surprise billing. They also require good faith estimates of charges to uninsured individuals. To learn more:  Call or visit our website for more information!
