The Biden Administration is in the process of finalizing its rules to enforce the No Surprises Act, which was passed by Congress in late 2020. This landmark bipartisan law protects individuals and families from receiving out-of-network surprise medical bills and ensures that health care costs don’t rise as a result. However, recent legal challenges could put your rights at risk.
Particularly, these challenges attack the administration’s design of the process that will settle payments between providers and insurers and could lead to much higher health care costs for families. As the administration finalizes its rules, we want them to keep the surprise billing law strong for families.
Send Secretary Becerra a letter today that encourages the administration to defend and implement the No Surprises Act in a way that protects patients from exploitation and reduces health care costs for families.
Now that the No Surprises Act protections are in eﬀect, we continue to provide resources about the statute. See our resources tab to learn more about the new law and our eﬀorts to keep it strong for consumers. You can also visit the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ website on the law for more information: https://www.cms.gov/nosurprises.
