No Surprises Act Update: The Latest Litigation, Enforcement and Implementation Challenges

The No Surprises Act (NSA), which went into effect January 1, 2022, was designed to protect patients from surprise medical bills when they are treated in out-of-network emergency departments or by out-of-network providers at in-network facilities. It represents a massive change in health patient financial practices—and controversy continues to surround its implementation, particularly around the new federal independent dispute resolution (IDR) process.

In a new webinar—the first program in our new health care litigation series—Manatt provides an update on the NSA, including new and ongoing litigation, enforcement and execution challenges. Topics that will be covered include:

  • A level-setting overview of the NSA 
  • A look at the current state of IDR arbitration and its complex challenges 
  • An analysis of both ongoing and new litigation 
  • A review of federal versus state enforcement 
  • A discussion of deferred enforcement of certain NSA provisions 
  • Guidance on regulatory and operational risks and compliance
