The No Surprises Act (NSA), part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021, provides protections against certain types of surprise medical bills. The NSA includes a requirement that group health plans and health insurance issuers provide a notice describing participants’ rights and protections regarding these surprise medical bills. This disclosure notice (Notice) must be publicly available, must be posted on the group health plan’s or issuer’s public website, and must be included on any applicable explanation of benefits (EOB). The Notice is intended to raise awareness and enhance understanding of state and federal balance billing protections.

Who must provide the Notice?

All group health plans and health insurance issuers offering group or individual health insurance coverage must provide the Notice.
