I read last week's overview of the No Surprise Law but I'm still confused. What do I have to post?
Thank you, Dr. K
Let's get to it! You have to give the patients and also post a notice explaining -
- what is a balance bill
- what a surprise bill is (non par provider stepping in and rendering services unbeknownst to patient in ASC or Article 28 setting, or airlift, etc.)
- restrictions on providers sending surprise balance bills
- applicable state law restrictions
- information on contacting appropriate state and federal agencies in the case that an individual believes that a provider or facility has violated the restrictions against balance billing
CMS has a free sample here - https://www.cms.gov/files/document/model-disclosure-notice-patient-protections-against-surprise-billing-providers-facilities-health.pdf.
We have compiled a Federal No Surprise Law form available by contacting Taryn at TCrimi@kirschenbaumesq.com. We are charging a processing fee of $85. The Federal No Surprise Law form does not represent our comprehensive NY Out of Network law forms.
