What is the No Suprise Act?
The No Suprise Act is a federal law that took effect on January 1, 2022, that protects consumers from most instances of “surprise” balance billing . The federal law applies to individual, small group, and large group fully insured markets and self-insured group plans including grandfathered plans. The legislation caps patient cost-sharing for out-of-network items and services at in-network levels and requires providers to work with insurers and health plans to negotiate remaining bills.
