AANS and CNS Lead Amicus Brief in Surprise Medical Billing Case

  • Reimbursement and Practice Management

Under the No Surprises Act (NSA), physicians and insurers can use an independent dispute resolution process to determine the payment amount for services. The process was intended to keep patients out of the middle of these billing disputes. Unfortunately, the final rules implementing the law unfairly favor insurers when settling out-of-network payment disputes. Several lawsuits challenging the NSA are making their way through the courts, and on March 20, the AANS and the CNS joined a physician-led amicus brief to ensure fair payment for physician services.
