New Law Alert: Surprise Billing

Surprise! In this episode, we are sharing the key features of the new federal Surprise Billing Rules. In general, a “surprise bill” happens when a patient isn’t given a choice of provider and receives an out-of-network charge. Some recent research have illuminated the scope of this problem, and were the catalyst for this new bill. The concepts are simple, but the rules are complex. The first phase became effective as of September 13, 2021. Tune in for the details!
