New Federal Mandate: Good Faith Estimates

As you may be aware, the No Surprises Act was passed at the end of 2020 as a part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021. Initially most experts believed this act applied only to facility-based providers. However, the recent finalization of Part II of the rules has a specific portion that applies to all health care providers.

One of the goals of the No Surprises Act is to ensure that patients do not receive health care bills that far exceed their awareness or expectations. Another key provision pertains to “good faith estimates” and will apply to nearly all chiropractic offices beginning on January 1, 2022.  The No Surprises Act is comprised of two major parts. Part I is entitled: “Requirements Related to Air Ambulance Services, Agent and Broker Disclosures, and Provider Enforcement,” and Part II is “Requirements Related to Surprise Billing”; only Part II will apply to most doctors of chiropractic. Overview of rules & fact sheets Provider requirements and resources
