No More Surprise Billing!
We’ve got good news: the “No Surprises Act” took effect at the beginning of this year! Most unexpected medical charges from out-of-network providers are banned by this legislation, meaning you are now protected from surprise billing.
The protections will work similarly to those established by the state of Texas, and the new federal rules will apply to all private insurers, including those provided through the Affordable Care Act.
Insurance companies are also required to provide the same coverage regardless of whether you receive medical attention at an in-network or out-of-network facility.
