On March 24 from 11 a.m. to noon (PT), CHA will host a members-only webinar explaining the No Surprises Act, which prohibits patients from getting surprise bills in certain out-of-network situations. 

Chad Mulvany, CHA vice president, federal policy, will lead the discussion on the act, which was signed into law last year as part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021 and addresses surprise medical billing for federally regulated plans and in states without surprise billing laws.   

The webinar will: 

  1. Address provisions of the law, including the process for how out-of-network bills will be resolved 
  2. Discuss impacts on the revenue cycle – including those for scheduled services and post-payment 
  3. Detail new health plan requirements created by the law 

Most sections of the legislation take effect Jan. 1, 2022.
