Preventing Surprise Medical Bills

The issue of patients receiving unanticipated medical bills is back in the national spotlight. It rose to prominence in 2019, consumed the attention of policymakers in 2020, and is the focus of newly released regulations designed to implement the “No Surprises Act” which passed in late 2020. This episode, with interviews from an AAOS member expert and a senior health legislative assistant to U.S. Rep. Tom Suozzi (D-NY), explains the new process for resolving payment disputes and discusses concerns as to whether or not the regulations will ultimately fulfill their promise.
