EDPMA and ACEP sent the following six joint letters to the federal decision makers (HHS, DOL, IRS, CCIIO, and OMB) on provisions we would like included in the rules implanting the federal No Surprises Act. The No Surprises Act establishes a process for payment and dispute resolution for out-of-network emergency care (and some nonemergency care). Many important issues were left open for the Administration to address in the rulemaking phase. The sixth letter, sent on August 31, 2021, comments on the first Interim Final Rule with Comment on the No Surprises Act.
