CMS will host a Special Open Door Forum (SODF) to explain provider requirements under the No Surprises Act. Starting January 1, 2022,consumers will have new billing protections when getting emergency care, non-emergency care from out-of-network providers at in-network facilities, and air ambulance services from out-of-network providers.
