The AHA Friday urged the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to evaluate and adjust the burden estimates associated with the uninsured and self-pay good faith estimates and patient-provider dispute resolution established under the No Surprises Act. 

“The government has substantially underestimated the burden associated with implementing the good faith estimates and patient-provider dispute resolution process,” AHA wrote. “We urge the agency to revise its estimates based on the actual experience of providers since implementation on Jan. 1, 2022. We also offer recommendations on how to minimize operational inefficiencies without compromising the policy’s important goal.”
