The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a request for information (RFI) on the advanced explanation of benefits and good faith estimate requirements of the No Surprises Act, which addresses surprise medical billing at the federal level.  

This RFI seeks information and recommendations on transferring data from providers and facilities to plans, issuers and carriers, other policy approaches, and the economic impacts of implementing these requirements. 

Responses to the RFI will inform future rulemaking by the Departments of Labor, Treasury and Health & Human Services regarding these requirements. Comments are due to CMS by 2 p.m. (PT) on Nov. 15.
