The New Frontier in Managed Care: An Overview of the Newly Passed Federal Surprise Billing Legislation

After years of wrangling over patient complaints about high out-of-network bills, Congress passed and the President signed legislation designed to curb surprise billing practices. The “No Surprises Act” will not go into effect until 2022, but already many in the healthcare industry are trying to assess what the effect of the legislation will be on existing and future managed care arrangements, revenue cycle practices, and disputes concerning out-of-network reimbursement, and potential unintended consequences. Please join our experienced panel of managed care specialists for a discussion about the No Surprises Act, including the following:

  • An overview of the new law and lessons learned from similar state laws
  • Developing internal processes for complying with the legislation—strategies and tools for success
  • Important upcoming regulatory activity that will shape the requirements and outcomes of the new law
  • Our predictions about the long term effect of the legislation and potential regulations on the managed care industry for both in-network and out-of-network services
