Meet your new rights under the No Surprises Act

18 minutes

The No Surprises Act — a new law that protects us from some outrageous out-of-network hospital bills — takes effect this month. That's great news, but (and there’s always a but) there are some important caveats to know about. 


Like, for instance: these protections only apply to care you get in a hospital. Then there’s the deceptively-named Surprise Billing Protection form they might ask you to sign. And there’s more. 


We break down what you need to know about your rights under this new law, what traps to look out for, and who to call if something smells fishy. 


Actually, here: The federal hotline for reporting No Surprises Act violations: 1-800-985-3059.


Big thanks to our guides: Patricia Kelmar, Health Care Campaigns Director at U.S. PIRG, and Julia Nigrelli from health care consulting firm Chi-Matic.
