On Friday, August 19, 2022, The U.S. Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, and the Treasury this afternoon released a final rule further implementing provision of the No Surprises Act.
This rule addresses the IDR components of the legislation and responds to the federal court ruling from earlier this year regarding the approach that arbiters must take when making a payment determination in federal IDR.
NOTE: this is separate from the proposed rule which has cleared OMB and we are expecting soon, which will focus on the Advanced EOB provisions of the NSA as well as “Other Provisions.”
Stay tuned for additional information and analysis.
