The No Surprises Act (NSA) is part of the 2021 Consolidated Appropriations Act and includes extensive federal protections for healthcare consumers.
The NSA shields consumers from surprise billing if they have a group health plan, group or individual health insurance coverage and also provides protections for the uninsured and self-pay patients. It bans all surprise bills for emergency services from an out-of-network provider or facility without prior authorization.
