No Surprises Act
What is the No Surprises Act?
The No Surprises Act protects patients from surprise medical bills when you can’t control who is involved in your care, such as emergency services or getting treated by an out-of-network provider at an in-network hospital or ambulatory surgical center.
For patients who do not have insurance or who are not using insurance, you have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate explaining how much your medical care will cost.
