WHA Offers Complimentary Webinar on the No Surprises Act

On Dec. 28, 2020, Congress passed the No Surprises Act as part of the year-end omnibus spending bill. The Act, which largely goes into effect on Jan. 1, 2022, protects consumers from surprise medical bills, including from out-of-network emergency treatment and for non-emergency services performed by out-of-network providers. While many details of the No Surprises Act will be forthcoming as federal agencies engage in the necessary rulemaking, WHA will host a webinar to address the provisions of the Act and the first set of implementing regulations as they apply to health care providers.

Surprise! It’s the No Surprises Act
Thursday, Sept. 2
10 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.

Brian Stephens, CEO of Door County Medical Center and chair of WHA’s Transparency Task Force, will kick off the session, which will include remarks from WHA Senior Vice President of Public Policy Joanne Alig and a presentation by Kelly Noyes from WHA’s valued corporate member von Briesen and Roper.

The target audience for this webinar includes CFOs, revenue cycle management, patient financial services management, compliance representatives and in-house counsel.
