Agencies release new form for No Surprises Act dispute resolution process
The departments of Health and Human Services, Labor, and the Treasury today released an updated web form that will replace all existing methods for submitting Notice of Offers to certified Independent Dispute Resolution entities under the No Surprises Act.
“Beginning October 19, 2022, all disputes that are not currently within the 10-business day notice of offer phase of the Federal IDR process and that have not already received Notice of Offer forms from their certified IDR entity will receive a web link from their selected certified IDR entity to submit the Notice of Offer form through the Federal IDR portal once the certified IDR entity confirms eligibility for the Federal IDR process,” the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services said.
The new semi-customized form is intended to reduce the burden for disputing parties and certified IDR entities. For more on the IDR process, visit the CMS webpage.
