WEBINAR: Surprise! The No Surprises Act is Coming!

July 29, 2021

New price transparency requirements are on their way!

In addition to ending the practice of “surprise billing,” the new CMS regulations also requires price comparison tools and new patient protections through price transparency – and their effective date is less than six months.

eHI, Axway, the American Heart Association, and Zelis Healthcare joined up to discuss the new requirements and their impact on the healthcare system. The webinar also explores common threads across recent healthcare data-sharing and transparency tools to identify actions that can help meet new requirements and decrease the administrative burden.
