No Surprises Act
As of January 1, 2022, Congress enacted the “No Surprises Act”. The act is described as “new federal protections against surprise medical bills that take effect in 2022. Surprise medical bills arise when insured consumers inadvertently receive care from out-of-network hospitals, doctors, or other providers they did not choose.” (See https://www.kff.org/health-reform/issue-brief/no-surprises-act-implementation-what-to-expect-in-2022/).
I commit to being transparent with you about the costs of the services we agree on together. You will have “no surprises” here.
I aim to empower my clients to be honest about what support they are wanting and aim to protect you from “inadvertently” receiving services from me. Also, the final rules about how to implement this in therapy practices such as mine have not been written yet by the federal government.
