Snapshots from yet more unintended consequences from the No Surprises Act
Since the NSA mandates that patients should no longer cover surprise billing, who pays for out-of-network care has become an increasingly tense area of contention between payers and providers.
Two critical questions include:
Who must absorb out-of-network expenses, now that the No Surprises Act (NSA) extends to emergency room physicians, anesthesiologists, pathologists, and other providers where patients rarely have the opportunity to acknowledge and accept out-of-network care?
How does network adequacy or geographical location impact reimbursement negotiations between payers and providers?
