The Departments of Health and Human Services, Labor, and the Treasury June 14 announced a 120-day extension for parties impacted by the cyberattack on Change Healthcare to open disputes under the No Surprises Act independent dispute resolution process. Parties have until Oct. 12 to file disputes and must attest that their ability to open a dispute was impacted by the incident, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services said. The departments published an attestation that parties must submit along with the standard IDR form during the extension period. The AHA previously advocated for the departments to create the extension.
