FAQs Released on Federal Transparency and No Surprises Act Regulations

​​On August 20, the Departments of Health and Human Services, Labor, and Treasury (“the departments”) released a set of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) related to provisions in the No Surprises Act and the Transparency in Coverage final rule. The departments announced they will be deferring enforcement of the good faith estimate requirements for insured patients, as well as the advanced explanation of benefit requirement. They also recognized the significant overlap between several of the No Surprises Act provisions and the transparency in coverage final regulations and plan to streamline requirements where appropriate. Finally, they identified several instances where they do not expect to issue regulations before a provision’s effective date, and addressed how they will monitor enforcement in those cases.

The American Hospital Association has a Special Bulletin highlighting the FAQs.
