CHA Comments on No Surprises Act Regulation

For CEOs, CFOs, government relations executives, finance & reimbursement staff, legal counsel

CHA submitted comments on the interim final rule with comment periodimplementing the No Surprises Act. 

In the letter, while CHA supports efforts to reduce patients’ out-of-pocket costs for health care, CHA raises a number of concerns with provisions of the interim final rule, including the qualified payment amount calculation and notice and consent process.  

Additionally, CHA asks the tri-agencies to protect patients from confusion and consumers from higher premiums — resulting from a rushed implementation of the No Surprises Act — by providing additional enforcement discretion. 

CHA thanks members for their feedback, which helped inform comments, and will continue to partner with the tri-agencies to implement the No Surprises Act.
