In late 2020, Congress took the important step of passing the No Surprises Act, a law that will finally protect consumers from most out-of-network surprise medical bills and help rein in health care costs.
The Biden Administration built upon the law that was passed by Congress by promulgating a strong rulemaking process, which incorporated critical feedback from consumers, providers, and stakeholders across the country. This feedback has helped to ensure strong protections for those seeking medical care, and reasonable guidelines for those providing care. We appreciate your partnership and thoughtfulness during this ongoing implementation process, no matter if this is your first time considering the impacts of surprise medical bills or if you have been working on this policy priority for years, every voice on this issue matters!
Now that the No Surprises Act protections are in effect, we hope to continue to provide necessary resources about the statute.
