CMS calls for resumption of No Surprises Act arbitrations

Posted On: Mar. 22, 2023 9:53 AM CST

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has instructed arbitrators to resume all recent payment dispute determinations relating to the No Surprises Act after the agency was forced to pause determinations following a February federal court ruling, Healthcare Dive reports. The agency had previously paused and resumed earlier disputes between payers and providers after a Texas judge ruled  that the dispute process for the No Surprises Act was unlawful and unfairly favored insurers, the report says. On March 17, the agency said that payment determinations could resume for disputes furnished on or after Oct. 25, 2022.
