Breaking Down Federal & State Surprise Billing Requirements for Massachusetts Physicians

In the final days of 2020, both Congress and the Massachusetts legislature passed laws related to surprise or out-of-network billing and related requirements for notice and disclosure for patients regarding network status and price transparency. The federal “No Surprises Act”, establishes a comprehensive statutory framework, including a ban on surprise billing, creation of an independent dispute resolution process, and patient notice and disclosure provisions. Provisions contained in the Massachusetts Patients First Act (Section 25 of Chapter 260 of the Acts of 2020), as detailed in the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH) similarly impose provider responsibilities for patient notice and disclosure regarding network status and price transparency.
