HHS Reports Benefits Under No Surprise Act

Law taking effect in 2022 to shield consumers from potential thousands in unexpected medical bills.

The Department of Health and Human Services released a report this week regarding the unexpected bills that millions of Americans experience who have private health insurance. The No Surprises Act (NSA), which goes into effect in 2022, will implement regulations to prevent surprise billing and curb health care costs. Many of the consumers who experience surprise bills are those who have sought emergency care.

“No one should have to worry about going bankrupt after falling ill or seeking critical care,” said Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra. “Today’s report shows that despite some state efforts to tackle surprise medical bills, patients continue to experience exorbitant medical expenses due to lack of transparency and rules.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For HHS officials as they prepare to implement the NSA regulations.
  • For Secretary Becerra to seek God’s discernment as he heads HHS.
  • For wisdom for the president and his administration as they consider health care reforms.
