Patient Billing Protections and Good Faith Estimates
On January 1, 2022, Sheridan Memorial Hospital and Clinics will implement the No Surprises Act (NSA), a law designed to protect patients against unexpected bills.
The law requires healthcare providers to provide good faith cost estimates to uninsured and self-pay patients before services are rendered; prohibits out-of-network providers and healthcare facilities from “balance billing,” or billing the difference between allowed charges and provider charges without notice and consent; and clearly outlines the complaint and dispute resolution processes.
