CMS Releases Revised Surprise Billing Rules & Clarifies Processes
On August 19, CMS announced several updates to the federal No Surprises Act implementation. These rules relate to those covered by insurance plans regulated by the federal government.
A reminder that claims related to individuals covered by insurance plans regulated by the state of Ohio are subject to different out-of-network rules administered by the Ohio Department of Insurance.
In addition to releasing new rules (as required by recent court rulings), CMS and the Department of Labor released new FAQs covering a variety of NSA requirements, an update on the Independent Dispute Resolution Process (IDR) including tips, and common mistakes and helpful guidance for those entities conducting the IDR process.
