Federal No Surprises Act Takes Effect in 15 Days: Are You Ready?

On January 1, 2022, a new and complex set of rules enacted by the federal government regarding “surprise bills” goes into effect. The statute is broad and sweeping and will have significant effects on any health care provider who renders services to out-of-network or uninsured patients. While many jurisdictions, including New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Florida already have rules addressing surprise bills, the Federal law varies from the state laws in many ways, including having a far wider application.

Garfunkel Wild, P.C., a law firm dedicated to the health care industry, is pleased to announce the creation of a Federal Surprise Bill Working Group that has developed a particular level of expertise in addressing client questions about the new Federal No Surprises Act law.

The penalties for violating the Federal No Surprises Act law can be substantial. If you are uncertain about an aspect of the new law – whether you are covered, what aspects of your practice are covered, and how to comply – the GW Federal Surprise Bill Working Group can provide unmatched expert guidance.

Should you have any questions regarding the above, please contact the Garfunkel Wild attorney with whom you regularly work, or contact us at
