The federal No Surprises Act (NSA) defaults to state law where states have enacted legislation that is at least as comprehensive as the federal law that took effect on Jan. 1.  

For state-regulated products, for some providers and care delivery scenarios, California law supersedes the federal NSA. To help members navigate the complexity of overlapping federal and state laws, CHA has created a grid, based on its understanding of federal and state laws, that identifies the circumstances where the NSA applies and where state law applies.  

Additionally, CHA has created a resource page to help members understand and comply with the NSA’s requirements.
