PART 1: No Surprises Act: Boost Self-Pay Collections, Stop Hefty Fines
Order the On-Demand Recording to Watch at Your Convenience.
Recent changes to the No Surprises Act have made it harder than ever for you to get paid what you’re due from your self-pay patients. The Act also expands your risk with errors driving penalties of up to $10,000 per violation.
Some of the riskiest areas of the No Surprises Act include how, when, and what you can bill your self-pay patients, what is a Good Faith Estimate, and when are you required to provide one to your self-pay patients…it’s all enough to make your head spin.
Missing even one piece of this frequently evolving regulation when billing and collecting from your self-pay patients can cost you thousands in lost revenue and penalties – driven by you not implementing the rules correctly.
Thankfully, that’s where healthcare attorneys, Daphne L. Kackloudis, Esq., and Ashley B. Watson, Esq., can help. During this online training, they’ll provide you with easy-to-follow No Surprises Act expert advice to ensure you’re billing and collecting your self-pay patients compliantly. You’ll reduce your error risk and the massive penalties that can accompany them.
PART 2: No Surprises Act: Stop Fines, Ace Self-Pay Good Faith Estimates
Available Immediately. Order the On-Demand Recording to Watch at Your Convenience.
Effective January 1st, your practice is required to comply with the No Surprises Act, which includes providing your uninsured (self-pay) patients with an “accurate Good Faith Estimate” for your services.
Sounds easy enough, right? WRONG. The federal regulations regarding how you must supply accurate Good Faith Estimates are vague and confusing, and if not done right, they leave you exposed to significant financial penalties from HHS. Penalties range from the full waiver of a patient’s bill to a fine of up to $10,000 per offense.
So, if the federal requirements are not clear on how to provide an accurate Good Faith Estimate, how are you expected to comply?
Fortunately, there is help available. During her 60-minute online training, expert and healthcare attorney, Gina L. Campanella, Esq., FACHE, will walk you through exactly how to prepare a correct, compliant Good Faith Estimate. Gina will boil down the Good Faith Estimate process into clear, understandable steps. She’ll cut through the No Surprises Act legal jargon of supplying an accurate Good Faith Estimate and help you avoid errors that lead to lost revenue, audits, and sky-high monetary penalties.
PART 3: No Surprises Act: New Out-of-Network & Uninsured Billing Rules
Available Immediately. Order the On-Demand Recording to Watch at Your Convenience.
Effective Jan 1st, you are required to be in compliance with the No Surprises Act, or risk being audited and hit with significant federal penalties.
The No Surprises Act seriously changes how you balance bill commercial insurance patients, and how you bill out-of-network and uninsured patients. The Act also includes an audit procedure for federal oversight, which means they are watching. This brand-new law is massive. It has hundreds of pages of confusing federal rules and regulations – all of which you are expected to master.
Failing to comply with the new No Surprises Act really isn’t an option. It can open your practice up to an independent dispute resolution – from both payers and patients. You can be targeted by the Feds and audited, and if you are not compliant, you can be hit with hefty financial penalties.
Thankfully, that’s where healthcare attorney David Vaughn, Esq., CPC, can help. David will provide you with actionable step-by-step tactics to make it easier and less complicated for you to comply with the No Surprises Act. During this online training, you’ll get clear compliance strategies on balanced billing, out-of-network billing, and billing uninsured patients. You’ll also get a breakdown of the Act’s documentation and notification requirements to ensure your practice is compliant.
